Slight Change in Plans

Earlier this week I announced that I was training for the Albuquerque Half Marathon. Yesterday I learned that the local Run for the Zoo is adding a half-marathon. It's two week later than the other event. The Zoo runs are ALWAYS well organized (and for a good cause and awesome logos as seen in my t-shirt quilt). The other event, not so much. Read my report from last year when they routed us across a one lane foot bridge less than a quarter mile from the start line.

Anyway, since I hadn't registered for the other event yet, I'm training for the Zoo half-marathon instead. And I couldn't be happier!!

Training is still going well. Got in my Thursday run even though I didn't think that I would. And I got my 8 miler in this morning. Wore my new pink skirt too, sadly I didn't think to get a photo to share. Trust me it is very cute.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Med Accountability:

Thu: 4 mile easy run

  1. I always trust you!
    Now you have 2 weeks more to prepare a faster half. I agree, a good organization is very important.

  5. That's awesome that they are offering a half marathon. I remember reading about that foot bridge - The Zoo HAS to be better than that.

  6. Sounds like a wise switch! I think I'll drag out my pink skirt for my v-day race. I hope I won't need 2 pairs of tights under it.

  7. I just saw your link to the t-shirt quilt. I'd love to get the info since I've saved dozens of race shirts over the years for a quilt and haven't looked for a place that can do it yet.
