Friday morning I got an email telling me I had a second chance to enter the inaugural Nike Women’s Half in DC. Yahoo!! I did hesitate for a moment or three before realizing I would cry if I didn’t sign up when I had the chance. I read the email really quickly and thought I needed to sign up for the 10K (virtual race happening this weekend) in order to sign up for the half so I did. (Although, even after I re-read the email several times, I still wasn’t completely sure if I actually needed to sign up for the 10K or not.) Either way, I was signed up and it was good motivation to get out there. Not to mention I’m IN! I’m IN!! Now comes the fun part of hotel and airline reservations… I have a feeling this is going to end up being an expensive trip.
Sunday morning a little too early due to springing ahead. I think I hit my snooze button a few too many times. But finally I was up and my shoes were laced. Off to the neighborhood park I went. I knew it would require several circles, but it was close and I knew the bathroom would be open.
For as beautiful as yesterday was, today was supposed to be rainy. While it was overcast and chilly, it was not rainy!! There was a slight mist which I was totally fine with.
I knew this choice would mean hills, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. What I had counted on was all the cross walks and waiting for the walk sign. Since I still am not 100%, I was actually happy about waiting for the walk signs! Ha!
I finished my 6.2 and headed back to my car. Just as I got in, it started raining! Hooray for beating the rain!! And hooray for second chances to get into the Nike Women’s Half DC!
