Once upon a time Dave told me he’d never do a half marathon, that he had no desire for it.
Then we ran Fort Lauderdale together and he realized it was kind of fun. And I know that he’s so naturally athletic that he won’t have to train a lot in order to run the whole 13.1 miles (he didn’t for Fort Lauderdale).
As for me, I’ve always been a bit of a race
addict fanatic. And being pregnant and all, I haven’t been able to sign up for as many marathons and half marathons this year (although I’m hoping I can do a half marathon in the fall, post-baby).
But then I found the Holy Half Marathon! It’s on April 10 and loops twice around Notre Dame campus. I’m so excited to run this with Dave! Plus the entry fee was low ($35) and the proceeds benefit three charities. I’ll be about 4.5 months pregnant at this point, so I’m confident that I’ll still be good to run (or run/walk), if a little slow. Now I have two more races to look forward to: the Holy Half and the Indy half marathon in May. Woohoo!
Signing up for races gets me all excited. Especially now that Dave is signing up, too!
What races do you have coming up this spring/summer?
A day late, but happy birthday to my sweet niece, Lydia Cate, who turned TWO yesterday! Dave and I love and adore this funny, smart, beautiful little girl!
