~Well, I did it!!! Yesterday I registered for Disney's Princess 1/2 Marathon next March!!! While I'm crazy excited, I'm also a tad bit nervous. Hopefully as I get more running experience under my belt, the nerves will subside.
~I was anxious to register because I don't want the race to fill and miss out completely and also, it's a great way to keep me running. After forking over $140 (race & the commemorative pin) I'll surely stay true to that commitment.
~The dilemma now is deciding which resort to stay at. It's between the two listed over there to your right. Please take a look at each of them-they are fairly similar-and place your vote for which one you think we should stay at. And by "we", I mean: Chele, Optimistic Pessimist & Rachel. Dawn & Brandi said they'll be there to cheer us on too. Jessi will be there in spirit, since the government has decided that they want her in Africa in March 2010...boo!! And Beth, I haven't forgotten that you mentioned being somewhat interested in joining the party!! If anyone else is interested in joining our crazy GIRLS WEEKEND, please do. The more, the merrier.
~And on another bright note, after way, way too many months (more than 1 year) to count, I finally ordered/purchased the Canon Digital SLR I've been wanting. Don't get me wrong, I'm still flat-broke (practically), but I do have a little fund that I had been contributing to back when I had a (real) job and well, I decided that it was just time to dip into that to pay for both the camera and the race. And well, I freakin' deserve it & that's the bottom line.
~I haven't felt this happy in a long time. It feels good.
~Oh...and tonight @ 9pm EDT I am running my 1st 5k race in 3 years. Wish me luck. I really, really, really want to set a new personal best. (wishful thinking...maybe?)
