Hubby finally decided that we are NOT going to the Bahamas to see his alma mater (U of TN) play in a basketball tournament the weekend of November 24th. Honestly I am glad he made that decision even though I would have enjoyed the trip.
Now I am free to join ONEKIDSMOM at the St Pete Women's Half Marathon again this year! It just must be that I am suppose to. One of the women in my running group invited me to go with her, so that means I won't have to rent a car. (Hubby and I share one car.) She has a place for me to stay, too, so my only expense will be the entry fee and whatever I buy at the expo.
I expect to be sleeping on a sleeping bag on the floor and staying with a bunch of young people who may be loud. Who knows if I'll get any sleep the night before. But that's okay! I'll be running the inaugural Lakeland Half Marathon on November 9th for time. It's hilly so may not be conducive to PRs, but I still think I can beat my one HM time. Barb is running the Women's Half to support her cousin and she doesn't expect the pace to be too fast. Sounds good to me. I think we'll have a whole lot of fun!! I haven't registered yet, but plan to do it today.
(In case you've been following my weight stabilization efforts it's a darn good thing I didn't add calories yesterday when I weighed under my range. I was exactly at my goal weight of 126.0, up 2.2 pounds from yesterday, after a good eating day.)
