So instead of complaining about how hot, humid, and sucky the weather is here in DC, I'm going to write about a couple of things I'm pretty excited for!
1. On National Running day I registered for the San Jose, Rock n' Roll ½ marathon. One of my best friends, Jessica, moved out to Monetary, CA back in June and I haven't had a chance to visit her yet. She had already registered for this race and it didn't take much convincing to get me to sign up for it as well. I have never done a rock n' roll series race, nor have I been to this part of CA. So I'm pretty excited for both, but I am mostly excited to spend time with Jessica and be able visit and run with her! It's going to be a great weekend and we both hope to PR on the half.

2. I just registered for my first 70.3, ironman mooseman, taking place next June 3rd. I know it's basically a year away, but if you registered this week you got a discount and got to save some moola! and saving money is always a good thing! I was looking to do my first 70.3 this fall, but couldn't find any that fit my already busy race schedule, so I settled on this one based on location and hopefully not boiling temps that time of year. Although the bike course looks like it's going to be pretty hard. And on a side note, I don't know if I would have ever registered for something this hard if I didn't start reading everyone else's blogs. So Im not sure if I should thank you guys or hate you guys?
3. I'm going to Philly this weekend for a small family vacation! My family is flying in from Ohio and Jason and I are taking the Amtrak up on Friday. I'm really looking forward to seeing my family as I have not seen them since Easter. And that is one of the down sides about living in DC. I miss my family so much and wished I could spend time with them every week, not every couple of months. So to say the least, I'm going to have a great weekend!
