I've Picked My Next Race

Actually I've found a couple.
August 30th 2008 I'm running here. Its a 5K in town. This of course is only if I'm in the country. I'd love to run the race and get my baby. I don't know how its going to work. Oh well. This is just a little extra incentive and a check on how my training is going.
November 8th 2008 I'm running 10K on the Lenior Greenway. I'm actually very excited because it means that my training is increasing and I'm gaining endurance.
The next step is what I'm really looking forward too. HERE!!!! I'm so excited because I've never been to this town. Normally it would be too commercial but its perfect for my half marathon. I've been told the course is relatively flat. I'm used to running on hills so maybe I'll make good time.
My training is going good. I felt like I had breakthrough this week. Nothing big. I've just felt so much better during my training. I've felt like I'm getting a little bit smaller, that will help with my running.
I'm so excited about this. I love my new hobby.

You've never been to Myrtle Beach!! Girl, you are missing OUT!! You will probably think it's a little run down--but I love Myrtle Beach. I've gone there for years--I especially remember my Graduation WEEK there!!! (back in 1990--ahmmmm--well, it's been a while) The last time we went was a couple of years ago.

Take some shopping money$$!!

You go girl. Run for the both of us. I've lost all motivation...my poor treadmill hasn't gotten any love for several months now.
