I really should be in bed...

In less than 12 hours I will be running the Chronicle Seaway Run 15k. A year ago I ran my very first race--the Chronicle Seaway 5k. Tomorrow I will be running at the same location, but starting 10 minutes later and in the longer event. Last year I felt like a noob and now I feel confident...I have already raced 2 10 milers, a HM and a 25k, so a 15k is a relative piece o' cake. As of tomorrow I really feel like a seasoned runner, even though I am still a relative newbie at this whole thing.

AND the race shirts are awesome...sea turtles with wings. Someday I want a little running turtle on my ankle with "zoom-zoom" below the little terrapin. I'm feeling really psyched for tomorrow...and the forecast is looking perfect (low 60s at the race start and likely low 70s by my finish...and full sun).

Another neat thing about tomorrow's race...I will have the best cheering section yet--hubby, son, and my mom and nephew (almost 6) are in town, too. And my bib is #12...just like my birthdate, 2/12. Should be my lucky day!

:D

  2. Thanks! I had a great race...probably a little slower than I could have run if I'd had my best friend running with me and pushing me (we compete with one-another and tend to push each other pretty hard), but it was perfect weather and a nice race. I love Muskegon!
