Three Things Tuesday

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


  1. I'm actually missing a race next weekend due to a family priority. I signed up for the MCM 10K and then found out my niece's 1st birthday party was going to be held the same weekend. So, I'm giving up my bib and heading home for the weekend. Sorry you're missing out on Philly!

  2. I'm glad you found a replacement race! And I hope you have a fun trip to Ohio this weekend.

  3. I'm sure it was tough to sacrifice your race, but it's awesome you were able to prioritize. Congrats on the new niece!
