Almost there!

I can't believe it's been so long since I've written in my blog. I have kept up faithfully with training I just didn't really have anything exciting to say!

I ran another 5K with my brother and sister in law in Texas. It snowed the night before (we are NOT used to snow) so it was FREEZING the day of the race! My Iphone said 19 degrees! Yikes! We all ran it though and my brother recieved 3rd in his age group (yay Brian!)! We had fun!!! :0)

Besides that, I ran a 10 miler to train a few weekends ago. I definitely hurt on Monday after I ran it (I ran on Saturday) but it felt good! Made me even more excited for the half!

I also got a new pair of Saucony's for Christmas from "santa"! YAy!!!!

Of course, the weekend of my very first half marathon is going to be the COLDEST WEEKEND OF THE ENTIRE WINTER for the South! It looks as if the low is going to be in the 20's. Having run a 5K in 19 degree weather, I know what I got too hot in wearing for just 3 miles so I'm modifying my outfit a little for this race.

I have:
Running Skirt - Red and Black (so cute!)
Black water wicking top (with of course a sports bra and sleveless shirt underneath)
Red Gloves
Red Hat
Spi Belt with Iphone, gels, and chapstick
Hot hands hand warmers

I might possibly get a sweatshirt to start...we'll have to see. I want a cheap one so I can throw it to the side when I get hot!

I cannot believe this weekend is finally here! We leave on Thursday!!!! I'm so excited!!!

Here's what I've worked so hard for this past year:

Get a look at the 2010 Disney Half Marathon medal featuring Donald, the official race conDUCKtor!
