This race pretty much has the best medals ever. Here's my medal from oh sev'.
And here is the marathon medal for this year. I'm not running the marathon, so I know mine will be slightly different, but still AWESOME.
Once again, my portion is 7 miles, which is really no biggie, but kind of a biggie if you haven't been training... Which I really haven't been. I mean, I've been running 3 miles here and there. And going to bootcamp class twice a week. I'm naturally a pretty good runner, so I know I can go out and do the thing without training. But I also know training and being ready for it will make it so much more enjoyable.
Lately I've been trying to get a little more serious about training. Yesterday I ran 7 miles on the elliptical, with moderate resistance to make it more like real running. It only took me 40 minutes, so I know this was more like running 4-4.5 miles.
Today I went out for a real run, with the idea that I would run the full 7 miles, but I only did five.
Anyway, I'll probably insert a few updates into the ole blog between now and race day. I know this shiz is sooooo interesting, and you cannot possibly wait to read more about it. Chill you guys.
Kick off is 8 minutes away, and I have other things on my mind at the moment.
