I'll be cheering my sparkies on from Kent (since this one is on the same day as my handfasting)!

Nah! They should be running WITH us & enjoying the fun, not running away from the three of you! Elsa knows...Bill & Laurie aren't TOO crazy, are they? Mel's not too bad either, I promise! And I'm the normal one of the group. It's safest to stay close to me.

She decided to start living the life she’d imagined. Celebrate her freedom.

She turned her can'ts into cans, and her dreams into plans. Celebrate her goals.

Ewww...no mullets please. Although I bet WB would get some great photos of the long hair blowing in the breeze as he runs the race! Not as good as Suezette's bouncing ponytail, but maybe a close second!

Wow, this is on alot of people's lists! I am also planning on this one next year. Hubby and I were both in the Air Force, plus we have friends in the area, so I'm thinking race / vacation trip next year!
Will have to touch base with everyone again next fall to see who's signed up. Meanwhile, for anyone doing it this year, looking forward to hearing your reviews!

Don't think, just do

I bet you didn't know that I was going to be at Air Force too! Mel, I fully intend to shave at least 15 minutes off my Flying Pig PR. Don't you think 2:20 is a little conservative? At least aim for 2:15! You know what would help that cranky knee of yours? Some PT (hint hint!!)

I'll have the Garmin at work today...remind me & we'll set up Lil Bill for you!

Yeppers! I am so excited for this HM because we are Air Force parents and our family LOVES anything aviation. Who knows, if we like this one we may have to come back next year since they change the medals to a different jet every year. My hubby is already registered for the 5k and they get medals also. CANNOT WAIT!!

I did it! I registered for HM#2! Air Force in Dayton Ohio on September 17th! I have found that I really need something to look forward to to give me the added incentive to keep up the running. I have instant motivation as soon as I clicked "SUBMIT" on my registration!

The biggest selling point (besides the fact that I get to run it with several fellow sparkers!) is that it's FAST and FLAT! That was a requirement after the hills of the Flying Pig! LOL! The medal looks so cool! It's at the AF museum, supposed to be a pretty course. I'm stoked!

Anyone planning on attending this year?? If you're interested, the spots are filling up fast, they're at 80% full right now! www.usafmarathon.com/
