1. I was really looking forward to running the Philly half marathon Nov. 20th, but I am no longer able to run this half. This is a personal decision that I made because I felt a family priority was more important than running a race. The decision was an easy one because there is always more races. Well, I actually went into a little bit of a panic mood because I really had my heart set on a PR on this course and was scared I may not find another half that was close to the same date *let the internet search begin!* And in not to long I found a new race that is taking place in Norfolk, VA, The Freedom Marathon, on Nov. 13th. This race actually works out great because I do not have to adjust my training too much and one of my good friends lives in VA Beach so I get the bonus of a great visit! With that said, if you know anyone who wants a Philly Half bib please let me know!
2. I am finally feeling better this week after being sick all last week. It's nice to get back to normal and not lay on the couch all night long.
3. After 3 weekends in a row of racing, I am taking a break this weekend and going to Columbus, Ohio. My sister is having her second little girl tomorrow, so I will get to visit my new niece and the rest of my family :) I am really excited about this!!! I am also going to a friends wedding on Saturday night. I am really looking forward to this weekend and think it will be a nice break. Although my running shoes are being packed so I can get at least a couple runs in over the weekend :)
Have you ever passed up a race because you felt something else was more important?
Happy Tuesday All
