1. I will be running the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run this weekend and I am excited!! I ran this one other time back in 2004 and I remember that it started sleeting during the last mile of the race. It didn't really bother me at the time because I was at least wearing a long sleeve shirt but Mike had no shirt and was freezing at the end. I think it's going to be a nice day. The one interesting thing about this race is that they now have a Virtual Goodie Bag that they email to participants. You click on a link and there are coupons from vendors.
2. For some reason since signing up for the The North Face® Endurance Challenge Half Marathon last week I've been wanting to sign up for more half marathons. I'm not sure why that is...one that looked interesting to me was the Women’s Half Marathon Trail Run on September 10th. I wish I could do all my runs on trails. I really enjoy being outside and in nature and definitely prefer trail running to road running. Maybe that's why I wanted to sign up for this half marathon, because it would give me an excuse to drive further away to run on the trails. I'd like to get some new trail running shoes and have just begun looking online at different ones. Any recommendations?
3. I am loving the library right now. I went last night and got lots of different books for the boys. I got some beginning reader books for Charlie. It is so cool to see your child learning to read!! I love it. I love watching him sound out the words and be able to read a story. For myself I got more cook books. I was in a bit of a hurry while I was there and didn't have much time to look around, but today I went online to the Library's website and reserved some DVDs and books on CD for my commute. I figure why not learn something while I'm driving and maybe listening to something positive while I'm driving will keep me less stressed out in all that yucky traffic.
