- I announced my Sportshield Giveaway winners -- Congratulations to Kovas and MissZippy! I have another giveaway waiting in the wings, so stay tuned.
- I'm back at work this week and things are no less busy. Really, things started getting busy for me in May or June and I don't see an end to it until November. By then, we'll be into the holidays, so I guess I really don't see any end to my busyness. Todd and I have THREE trips to Florida between now and the end of the year - two visits to family (my sister lives in Tampa, his brother lives in St. Cloud and his parents live in Leesburg), and one visit to the Mouse.
I'm in the process of getting a trip report together from my trip to Belize. I have it about half written, and I think it's likely to be split into two posts. Maybe I'm being too verbose, who knows. Todd is also getting his photography together. I know I say this every time, but I really think that this is some of his best work that he's ever done. You can see a sneak preview on his RedBubble site, although there are still more photos to be added.
- This weekend is the Philadelphia Rock & Roll Half Marathon!! I'm totally psyched! I don't have a specific goal for the race, since I set a PR for a half at Lehigh Valley in April and I just don't know if I have it in me to beat that PR this weekend. I've gained a little weight since then (maybe about 5-6 pounds). I feel like my training was better over the winter than it was this summer. I've felt so sluggish lately.
Regardless, I'll probably race it as best I can, and maybe I can set a course PR (which seems a lot more doable). Pretty much my entire running group is running this race, so we are having dinner Saturday night for a total of 16 people! I'm excited for everyone who has worked so hard this year to train for a faster time, and those who are doing a half marathon for the very first time. It's going to be great!
Look for a race report for Philly on Sunday evening or Monday. We're heading up to Philly Friday night so I can spend time with my roommate from college, Cheryl. Saturday, we're going to go to the expo, relax and do some sight seeing. It's going to be a fun weekend!
