I can’t believe this weather we are having!!
Yes, that would be snow on my windshield on my way home from work.
Seriously Alaska! I am just glad it isn’t really sticking. . . . . . .yet!
Last year on this day we were celebrating my sister’s birthday (Happy Birthday, Kristy!) and the last day of school for me!! In the sunshine of course!
Luckily I didn’t have to run in the snow this morning during my run. It was raining though.
Distance: 4 miles
Nice easy run before my long run tomorrow morning.
I signed up for another race!
My sister and I ran the Trent/Waldron Glacier Half Marathon last year. It is one of the smaller half marathons in Anchorage, but it was still fun. I set a new PR last year, but I am way behind where I was last year in my training, so I will definitely not be setting a new PR this year.
I can’t believe it only cost me $30 to register for the race.
I can’t decide if I should run the half marathon or full marathon in June at the Mayor’s Marathon.
Reasons to run the half-marathon:
- I am not in that great of shape to run a full marathon.
Reasons to run the full marathon:
- I love running marathons!
So, I do want to do the full marathon, but I’m worried I am going to crash and burn since I’m not sure my body is ready to run another marathon so close to the Boston Marathon. I really don’t have much time to prepare and don’t know if I will be able to squeeze in a 20-miler beforehand (although I could probably make it happen). But I don’t know this would be the best thing for my body. I could wait until August to run a different marathon, but I want to do this one! I did it two summers ago, so I know the course and it is the marathon of the summer for this area. But. . .I would be very unprepared, so maybe I should just stick to the half.
I can’t believe I actually like this song
Light ‘Em Up – Fall Out Boy
This is much heavier music than I usually listen to, but I love the beat to this song. I could see this being a good pump-up song when running. Maybe I’ll have to change my musicless ways and put this song on repeat for my next marathon. . . .or at least for the last couple of miles.
What is something you can’t believe happened?
What are your running plans for the weekend?
