So, I’ve determined that I am prone to R.C.H. (Race Commitment High). It’s a completely made-up condition that is brought on by hitting the submit button and officially entering into a race. Symptoms include an immediate sense of gratification, excitement, purpose for training, and renewed inspiration. Really, R.C.H. is quite the condition to have. So when I heard that my friend Taylor signed up for the Napa Valley Marathon (<— I think there’s at least two of us runner girl’s out there with R.C.H., just sayin’) I was quick to follow.
This will be my second marathon, the first was the Nashville country music marathon that I ran with my older brother and two younger sisters back in 2010. Here’s a couple of pic’s of us at 5am the morning of the race. As you can see we all received the ‘whole lotta limb’ gene:
I felt great and finished in a 3:21. Beating my little sisters and eating copious amounts of cupcakes after the race were my goals. Mission, accomplished.
After committing to the Napa marathon, I decided it was a good time to
find more company for my miserystart a running team for the IRUNLIKEAGIRL active wear brand. And so, Team IRUNLIKEAGIRL was born. If you like to run and EAT, you should come hang out with us. If you just like to EAT, you should come hang out with us. We have 8 runners training for the Napa marathon in March and a bunch more that come out to run (and EAT) with us! Here’s a quick shot from last week’s 2013 kickoff party right before our run in Golden Gate Park…
So, I’d love to know…
What are you training for?
Have you ever run a marathon?
When it comes to cupcakes, do you enjoy the cake or the frosting more?
