My initial walking-back-to-hotel-in-the-rain reaction from Seattle RnR was that I'd wait until next spring for another one. By the time I had showered, I was already thinking maybe this year. And by the time I arrived home from Seattle, I was attached to the idea of CIM. After all, hubby is running it so I'm going anyway...I worked out the training plan, realized it fits well with other races, and decided to go for it.
The race is December 2 so I have plenty of rest time in between. The next few months include a few fun half marathons (SF, Chicago, San Jose RnR) and the Napa Ragnar Relay, which I'm super excited about! I'll get back into marathon training around the end of August and look forward to challenging myself again. I'm gunning for that sub-5 goal, CIM here I come!
And for this weekend, I'll be relaxing with short runs and enjoying the arrival of our new kitten, Willow! The cuddly little gal comes to us tomorrow after work and I couldn't be more thrilled to bring her into our little family.
A Willow preview. More cuteness to come.
