I asked for someone to run a marathon…picked the lovely Jodi…then disappeared!
Well that’s because I was waiting on details to be finalized before shouting from the rooftops some of our exciting news! First you can read about all the teams involved and get training tips on 26Strong.com.
After a few of us selected the Honolulu marathon for our 26Strong race, they began to think…and ponder..and scheme. Finally last week, we received word that they were inviting ALL teams to come run that race if it fit their schedules.
I’ve been promising David that we would go together since my trip with Timex last October…so thank you Saucony for ensuring I stay true to my word! We will be extending our stay and finally for the first time in years taking another week long vacation together!! I love all my travels, but certainly miss having him with me.
Picking a PR full: Since I will be running Honolulu side by side with the awesome Jodi, I wanted to pick another race for me to focus on a PR. Part of me wants to do it in Jan/Feb simply because the weather here is better for training in winter…yet I’d really like to set a goal for 2013. Ahh decisions.
I feel very privileged to have not only heard Bart speak many times in person, but to have interviewed him and simply talked with him in many very casual groups. He is genuinely a kind soul, ready for adventure and with some of the world’s best running stories.
In other equally exciting news, I was selected as one of 6 Popsugar blogger contributors for an award. Honestly it was a surprise to be selected at all, but probably one of my proudest because of the specific reason they selected me…it means that what I’m choosing to do each day is making a difference.
Yes things have been poppin’ around here lately and I’m trying to take it all in!! Fully appreciating just how amazing these opportunities are…but really I’d love to know:
What fantastic thing has happened to you lately??
