Anyone else eagerly watching the Nike Women’s Marathon Facebook page for when the lottery for the new DC Half race opens up? I have wanted to do their San Fran race for a while (Hello, firemen & a Tiffany’s necklace?! Yes please!) but alas, it usually falls right when work is super crazy busy. Plus (or this is how I justify trying for DC rather than SF) I’ve run races in CA and this will help me knock off another location (even if DC isn’t technically a state). I feel like the woman in the Mervyn’s commercials “open, open, open”. Supposedly it is opening later this week. Well, it is later isn’t it?
In other racing news, I looked at the calendar and realized I am racing the next 3 out of 4 weekends! Yikes! But I’m hoping this helps with my general running malaise lately. This weekend (the surprise, I just entered today, race) I will be doing the Greenlake Gobble 10K.
- Christmas (or holiday if you so choose) lights being strung on the trees at work
- “Punch list” – yeah, I’m not sure what this means either but I’ve heard it from several different people in several different meetings.
- Maple syrup
- Eggnog flavored popcorn!! Okay, so I know I have a rule about no eggnog lattes before Thanksgiving, but having eggnog popcorn is okay, isn’t it?
- Really, really tired
- Cold nights and warm blankets to snuggle up with
