Decision made

Well, a decision has been made.  A while ago (actually a reeeeeeeallly long time ago) I mentioned how I had a few races that I wanted to do, but wasn’t ready to commit.  The Harper’s Ferry Half Marathon was one that Sarah and I were debating, and I was also thinking about the Frederick Half Marathon.

Well, the decision has been made.  Harper’s Ferry, we’ll see ya next year.  Frederick, I’m cominggggg!

Next Sunday, I will be heading up to Frederick, MD to run 13.1 glorious miles and to hopefully do it in under 2 hours.  Well, assuming that they don’t sell out before I can buy a bib.  (Online registration is closed to I have to wait until next week to buy one in person).

I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited about the race schwag.

So now, I turn from despair over my 10 miler performance, to excitement about doing a half-marathon! Haha! But for real, I’m excited! The last half I did (ING Miami Half Marathon) I was still struggling with ITBS.  So, I wasn’t able to run as well as I wanted to (I had to stop and stretch the IT Band like every 2 miles).  This is going to be my chance at redemption! Okay, maybe that’s too much pressure on one race, but I am really excited to see what I can do!

Do you have any upcoming races you’re excited for?

  1. Thats awesome- good luck!!

    My next race is a 5k (the color run) in Chicago in early June. I wish I could throw a longer race into the mix this summer but its probably not smart given my nagging injuries.

    • Yeah, that makes tons of sense. It’s better to use the summer to get/stay healthy and strong. But I’m sure you’ll have tons of fun with the Color Run! I really want to do it in DC, but it might interfere with possible Ragnar Relay plans.

  2. Good luck, just finished my first half and still waiting for the pain to subside.

    • Congrats on your first half! Hopefully I’ll be up and running soon after, bc I’m considering another half at the end of May!

  3. YEA! That looks like a really good one. I’ll be out in D.C. next weekend for my friend’s going away party and maybe I can make it to the race on Sunday? I’m afraid I’ll still be hungover…

    Run the Alexandria Half with my sister and I on May 27th!!!!!

    • Actually I think I am going to do that one! I’m just a liiiiittle nervous that it will be hot. But that’s more incentive to run faster, right? 🙂

  4. Good luck!!

  5. Awesome jacket! When i am choosing between two races, i totally make the call based on the t-shirt/swag. I am so greedy.

  6. Hope your race went well!!!!
