Thank god it’s effing Friday! 😀 This week seemed to drag on forever, even with the snow day on Wednesday! Oy. In cute news, Buckleface got groomed yesterday (he was long overdue- I feel like a bad parent!): He is one of the cutest little guys ever. Anyway. I was looking at my google calendar (one of the best things ever, by the way) and I realized that I am running a marathon relay with Jen and Melissa in oh, a little over two weeks. The legs are 9.2, 5.7 and 11.3 miles. I assumed I would be running the short distance, with Jen training for a half and Melissa being her marathon-loving self. Well, Jen injured her hip and Melissa hurt her ankle. Hmm, I may need to up my training, seeing that after the half in October my longest run has been six miles in November at the end of Melissa’s marathon. Heh. Also, the day before the race is one of my besties’ 30th birthday and obvi we are going to do it up big. So, it should be an interesting race to say the least 😀
Exciting stuff happened while Brian was here! We both signed up to run the Boilermaker 😀 I am SO excited! It was one of my favorite races last year and it will be so awesome to run it with Brian (well, not with him, because he may run this race at his pace).
After last year’s Boilermaker with my bestie Nicole’s husband, Michael, who also ran the race
In addition to signing up for the boilermaker, Brian also registered for the Marine Corps Marathon! AAAA! So exciting. Civilian folk like myself (though hey, I am a military wife, doesn’t that count for something 😉 ) can’t register until February 23rd. I will be registering first thing that morning. I can’t believe we are running our first marathon this year! 😀
This weekend is going to be fun. A run with Melissa tonight (very necessary), chowderfest (YES!) manana, and a six miler on Sunday (I have to build up to the nine miles for the marathon relay!). What are y’all up to this weekend? Have a great one! 🙂
