One of my favorite weekends/races is just about here! Kyla and I leave for Chicago tomorrow morning to run in the Rock ‘n’ Roll half-marathon on Sunday! I can’t believe this is the SEVENTH year I have ran this race. I LOVE IT!
Anyways, Run and Be Happy will be pretty quiet until Monday night when I get home. I am leaving for Burlington this afternoon after I have lunch with a friend, then Kyla and I will leave early tomorrow morning for the city.
I have the day off from running so I just took Charlie for our usual 30 minute morning walk.
I am getting my baby grand piano delivered in a couple hours so I am beyond excited for that, on top of my building excitement for this weekend. 🙂
Last year Kyla and I walked about 40 miles over 2 1/2 days, so this year we have decided to up it to 50 miles, plus the 13.1 that we will run. We can do it.
It’s the only way I can truly enjoy Garret’s without feeling guilty.
The first year Chicago had this race, and the first time I ran it, my idol, Kara Goucher, was running. This year Meb is running it! I am crossing my fingers for a chance to see him tomorrow at the expo.
Anyways, I need to get to packing and get ready for my weekend. Have a great weekend, and if you are running this half-marathon (or any race for that fact) GOOD LUCK!
