A nice easy week leading up to my first half marathon on Sunday. That race pretty much snuck right up on me! The Surftown Half will be my biggest goal for myself this year. I’m so incredibly nervous about finishing in the allotted 3 hours. I really, really want to be an “official” finisher. Their website says they’ll wait at the finish until everyone is done to do medals, but only people under the time limit will be listed as “official”. At least that’s what I took away from it…. So that’s my biggest fear right now. I believe I can cover the distance, it’s just how fast I can do it.
In other news, I’ve had a pretty big week and can’t believe I haven’t written about this until now. I was published in a magazine! RI Fit put a call out to “fitness enthusiasts” and asked people to fill out a survey about themselves and provide a picture. One of the owners of Unleashed had mentioned it on Facebook so I said why the heck not. This was a little while back, but then Sunday night they tagged me on Facebook about the new issue. At first, I was sort of like, huh? But then I remembered filling the survey out and quickly flipped through to find myself! Woo hoo! Check me out here on page 43.
Back in July, I had registered for the Beat The Blerch virtual race. Well, they finally shipped all the swag and I got it last night! Totally worth the $45. Look at all these goodies! And I have another Blerch tech shirt, which is really the best part. How cute is the cake on the sleeve? I mean, seriously.
Tomorrow I’ll be manning the Unleashed tent at the fall BoldrDash OCR. Julie will be coming down to watch me run on Sunday, so I’ll hang out at the tent until around noonish and then head home to chill for the rest of the day. I’ll probably have to make jewelry, or cut things for them since I’m not very creative. It’s that time of the year! All the fall craft shows are coming, especially the big kahuna: the Scituate Art Festival. Shameless plug time – if you want to get in an order for a loved one for Christmas, check out her website!
I’m obsessed with this week’s song selection. I’ve heard it here or there on the radio in the car, but every time I do I’m just like YES!!! So anyway – here is the lyric version. The regular video might bother some? I don’t know. If you really want to see it, just go to YouTube.
Have a great weekend and wish me luck on Sunday!!!
