3 days until my 3rd half marathon. Whaaat?!
|my bib from my first half in 2014!|
I'm weirdly excited for this race. I don't think I trained quite as hard as I should've, but I'm a lot more prepared than I have been in the past. Of course now they are calling for AM thunderstorms on Sunday so we'll see how that goes. Running in the rain isn't ideal, but it beats the race getting cancelled all together due to lightning or something crazy. How about we all collectively do our own "rain dance" today and it'll stay away here in Cincinnati?! Cool, thanks! ;)
Regardless of my worries about the race-day weather, I can't wait to add another medal to my collection!!!
After this race is over, I'll probably take a couple weeks off to relax. BUT! I've really been thinking about working on my speed. Long distances are just hard. I've already told Caleb I will never have the desire to run a FULL marathon - so he can do that bucket list-item of his solo! ;) What I'd really like to do, is sign up for a 5K this Summer/Fall and really rock it. I've only ever run one real 5K and hadn't trained for it at all (back in 2011 - my higher-metabolism days, ha!, so I'm hopeful that I can get around 28 minutes if I really train for one (my sweet friend Anna would leave me in the dust)!
Tomorrow Caleb and I are each taking a half day at work and heading up to Columbus for a wedding of two of our friends! We're so excited for them! It'll be a little strange going to a wedding as GUESTS and not a photographer - but we're so pumped about it. We've known Luke (or as we like to call him, Sarge) and Ashlee for years and have been waiting for this day to get here! I know its going to be beautiful! I mean, look at how adorable they are!!
I've really been enjoying the freedom of this week. The rain ended up canceling an engagement session that I had on the calendar but its all good - Caleb and I have been enjoying our evenings together! I hope everyone's having a great week! It's almost Friday!!
