Sad, but true…no Friday Favs today. I know, I know, you’re sobbing right now. But in the midst of all of the wedding commotion there is something else brewing this weekend…you know what I’m talking about…
THE SAN FRANCISCO MARATHON!
(Well, the half marathon for me)
Given my commitment to a few other priorities in my life, marathon training wasn’t feasible so I’ll be trotting down the Golden Gate Bridge in the first half marathon come Sunday. But what I’m more excited about is seeing all of you bloggies, meeting a few of you for the very first time, and supporting the race as a San Francisco Marathon ambassador. HOLLA!
So here’s how the weekend will break down:
Sun., 5:32 a.m.: Wave 2 start. Holy hell, that’s early! The good news is that means I’ll be done that much earlier. Breakfast anyone?
As with any race, us bloggers usually post our goals before any race. The truth of the matter is that I simply have not trained how I would have wanted to. I blame Chicken Face and all of these marriage shenanigans. Thus, I’m planning on using this race as a fun training run for my current marathon training. Last year, I clocked the second half in 1:33:15. As much as it pains me to type this, I know that I won’t be able to do the same this year and I need to be ok with this. Breathe. Breathe. It’s ok. Breathe.
However, seeing old friends, meeting new ones, and earning the first-ever Half It All bling blang will totally be worth it. Plus, Lola may make a special finish line appearance…
So here’s to all of you brave souls running the full, the half, and the 5K come Sunday. I can’t wait to see you out there and will be cheering each of you on!
Are you going to be at #SFM2011? If so, let me know!
