In May 2011 I "ran" (walk/jog/walk) my first 5k....this lead to a racing addiction of sorts. I am not winning these races but I am winning in that I go, I run (now I run) and I have tricked a bunch of my friends into coming with me and I have made many lifelong friends in the process.
84 races later (as of 9/23/2012) I decided to start a blog. It will be mostly race recaps but I will soon be starting my marathon training...YIKES
I am 215 races down as of 12/31/13.
So I have had a busy few days. Baked 150+ cupcakes for a friend's wedding plus a cake for them to cut. I was also the best man in the wedding.
Rock Star wedding....on the stage of the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn.
So I spent all day yesterday relaxing because I got sick. I think it is a combination of lack of sleep, the change in weather, stress and not being able to run. One of my running friends said she gets sick when she can't run and so does her mother in law who is also a runner. I got my cast wet in the shower today so I had to take it off, my foot feels better with out it on so I may not get it put back on. I walked a bit this afternoon and it is feeling OKish.
Annnnnnnnnnnnnddddd my foot felling better and the wonderful running weather I am missing out on right now made me do this......
That's right I registered for a half marathon in March 2013 and for the Diva next year. Depending on when it it is I may register for the Long Island half too or maybe the Brooklyn half to make sure I get in the the Half Fanatics. I have the Flying Pig half marathon in May.
Would you register for 2 expensive races while still off your feet due to injury?
