It's true, I'm registered for my first marathon - the Mayor's Marathon on June 21, 2014. Summer solstice: the longest day of the year, in more ways than one this year. Ha!
I registered for the Twilight 12k and Her Tern Half back in January/February, to try a longer road race and do even better at the HTH this year (info on both races can be found here: http://www.skinnyraven.com/events-results/). It's going to be fun - I have a run to look forward to in May, June and July!
I expect training is going to be a challenge, mentally and physically. But I'm excited to push myself. I'm confident I can accomplish the whole feat and my only goal is to finish on my feet and healthy.
So anyway, funny story. Today was an 11 mile day. Coral and Stacia (my training partners) and I head out; it's a great, glorious run. We're cheering as we hit the "finish line" and high-five and start talking water, snacks and all the good things in our near future.
Then I go for my keys.
And they aren't there.
Next up is about an hour of walking to Stacia's for a car (a nice mile cool down), getting Adam's keys from him and driving slowly around our run route to see if a purple lanyard might be laying on the sidewalk. No dice.
So, we head home and lo! My keys are sitting right on the table where I left them.
Priceless. Let's hope the next 12 weeks are full of as many laughs!
