That's right! I'm a HALF FANATIC! #1059!
and I got a cute singlet too.
I'm not sure when I'll wear the singlet though. Do you wear them only for races or can you wear them for workouts too? This local MOM also just became a half fanatic (#1067) and is thinking of wearing her shirt everywhere! Maybe I should follow suit?
I'm just an entry level player now but am scheming to get 5 more half marathons in this year to bounce up to the next level. And guess what? It just so happens that one of my girlfriends just got engaged and wants to do a bachelorette party in Vegas, AND (because she's so cool) liked my idea of going in December for the Las Vegas RNR Half!
Does anyone know who is headlining the concert at RNR Vegas this year?
And in other random news...
This is the end of my work week, so I was relaxing with some treats that my Indy friend brought out this week (Mmmm....chocolate!). I totally got bitch slapped by:
|Read the label on the left...yes, it says this chocolate will bitch slap you.|
They really weren't kidding. I love spicy chocolate and didn't take their warning seriously. I took a healthy bite and then almost started crying. That stuff is hot. I think it's going to be saved for a mole or chili but definitely will not be consumed straight up.
And back to RUNNING news...
My treadmill interval workout today was great. I was kicking ass, the workout felt EASY even! Sadly, I checked my paces at the end only to realize it felt easy because my pacing was totally off (as in, 30 sec slower per repeat than planned). Darn! I will have to make up for that next week on track Tuesday.
My calves have been getting very tight lately which worries me. This is how they felt before I tore my calf muscle during my last attempt at training for a marathon. So, I need to be sure to get my yoga in tomorrow and stretch, roll, and stick.
Saturday or Sunday will be my second ever 20-miler. I'm getting excited to do another long run but need to figure out a route yet.
Anyone racing this weekend?
