So I announced my fall race schedule a few months ago.
Well, it’s changing. Very slightly.
Instead of doing the Alafia X-Country Half Marathon…I’m going to do the Women’s Half Marathon in St. Petersburg!
I don’t really want to run 13 cross country miles!
And I was sad that I missed the Women’s Halfer last year – I heard it was a great event. I can’t miss it again this year!
AND x 2 - the Medal this yea is going go be a-w-e-s-o-m-e! Check it out:
It’s a Palm Tree with a removable center charm that can be put onto a necklace or bracelet! Although to be honest, I’ll probably leave it on the medal. I’m not much of a jewelery wearer. (Disclaimer: I may or may not run half marys just to get a medal…)
AND x 3 – It’s the race that my Karna Fitness running group is training for.
To top it all off, the races are actually on the same day so I don’t have to change my training schedule at all! (Meaning I’ll be DONE before Thanksgiving and don’t have to watch how much beer I chug or every delicious morsel that gets piled onto my plate over the holiday!)
Speaking of Thanksgiving, this is where an addition to my schedule comes in:
I’ll also be running the BRC Turkey Trot 5 Miler on Thanksgiving morning!
This is the one I’m really excited about! Just because it’s going to be F.U.N.
Magpie (my mama) and Ron are running it too – and my niece and nephew will be waiting for us at the finish line!
Fun times for sure!
Plus there will be no pressure since it’s only a few days after the Halfer.
So there you have it – my updated fall race schedule!
