Warning: Somewhat Repetitive Blog - Countdown to HM

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Less than two days away now, I'm counting down to the inaugural Lakeland Red Ribbon Half Marathon. I picked up my packet yesterday. My race number is 3847. No, there are not that many half marathon runners. Over 7000 children are running in shorter races. Around 850 of us will go the 13.1 miles.

If I was a little better organized, I'd be posting a picture of my race shirt and number. But, unfortunately, it does not matter whether I'm 200 pounds or 125 pounds, I still don't have it all together. I took a great picture of the attractive race shirt, but I have misplaced the camera cable so can't download that shot right now. Oh, well.

At least I have no misplaced anxieties. I'm feeling pretty good. My three mile run yesterday at race pace seemed pretty easy. I'm ready!

    I'm so excited for you, dear friend. I have to go to the Daytona Beach area for my retirement party which is being held during a state-wide conference (an annual thing for us). I'm DREADING it so much. I don't like to be the focus of such a thing. I begged them to let me off the hook, but no dice. I would rather be running with you . . . and I'm not trained! I'm anxious to hear all about your HM. You continue to be our Skinny Goddess!
