24 DAYS LEFT until MARATHON DAY!
(I get a little nervous when type that)
What a great day for a run. Well the morning wasn't that great outside but I waited until nap time and was happy I did because that is when the rain finally stopped and the SUN decided to appear...I almost forgot what the SUN looked like here in WASHINGTON! The weird thing is how humid it has been which is very unusual here. I know you EAST COSTERS are familiar with that, but not so much here.
Memorial Day Run
May 31, 2010
I was really excited to run today mostly due to my friend Diana who had her longest training run to date. She RAN 13.1 miles in the pouring rain, on her own and without WALKING at ALL! Diana...that's called a PR....WOOT, WOOT! This is a huge deal for her and I was so excited to get the call when she was done with it. I was so proud and excited for her. It was a GREAT running day for her for numerous reasons and I could totally hear it in her voice. Runs like today make the bad runs SO WORTH it. GREAT JOB DIANA....I am so PROUD OF YOU! You are going to ROCK at R'n'R Seattle for your very first HALF MARATHON. (Her first official HALF MARATHON RACE) She is working on getting her BLOG together and after today she was really excited to get serious about it. I will keep you posted so you can start following her journey.
*Oh and I have a question.
I was looking at ordering the pace bands. Have you used them? Did you like it? Did it help you? Should I order them for my first marathon or just enjoy the run without worrying about time? I think I am for sure going to get the Grace Band...I love that idea.
