Celebrate Life Half Marathon
Yes, it will be hilly.
Take a look:
But that’s not why it will be hard.
I will be running it for a close friend who has been diagnosed with breast cancer…for the third time (2nd in 2 years.) She has recently had a mastectomy and should be fine but it is still scary.
A whole busload of runners from my area are going down for the race. They are all probably racing because they know someone who has had cancer.
So the race should be fun. But it will also be sad.
Even my friends Mary Pat and Judy will be on the bus. They are running the relay together.
I feel like I just ran a half marathon.
Wait a minute. I just did 5 weeks ago.
After that, I did all my long runs – 10, 12, 12, 10 miles.
So I must be ready? Right?
None. I have not run on any real hills. I do not want to get injured so I will take it easy. I hope to enjoy the race.

What’s not to enjoy?
Still deciding due to the weather. But hopefully, it won’t rain and will be warm enough:
I have a lot of shorter races lined up for the spring and summer.
But that doesn’t mean that I won’t be signing up for any half marathons.
The Vermont City Marathon Relay on May 29 is a definite…
I also signed up for this one at an expo (because it was cheap):
And there is a blogger meet up in the works…Panama City Half Marathon in December????
Since it is Thursday, I’m linking up today with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud Thursday.
