Shamrock Half Decision

Happy Thursday friends! Who’s excited for the weekend? I know I am.

I made a final decision that I’m going to go to Virginia Beach this weekend to see if I can run the Shamrock half marathon. My plantar fasciitis hasn’t been bothering me much at all lately, so I’m sure I will at least be able to run part of the race without any problems.

Since I’m not well-trained, my game plan is to be pretty liberal with the number of walk breaks I take. And if anything starts to bother me while on the course, I will have no problem stopping and taking a DNF.

I’m looking forward to the trip because it’s been a while since I’ve gotten out of DC. The last time was back over New Year’s when I was home in PA and frankly that trip was not under the best of circumstances. Plus I’m looking forward to hanging out with Emily, Aila and Diana! It will be a fun girls weekend.

I’m also looking forward to heading slightly south where the temperatures might be a little be warmer than what we have going on in DC today. After a gorgeous nearly 70 degree day yesterday, today we are plummeted back into the low 20s.

I’m over this winter stuff. I want to be able to pack up my sweaters and dig out my sundresses and flip flops.

    Marathons are so awesome! It’s one of the few times people get off of facebook and get together IRL (in real life). Lol here I am on my computer…
