Experia Socks Winner and RACE

The WINNER of the Experia Socks is- Robin at Westford Mommy. Robin has been a reader and supportive/helpful commenter on Tall Mom for a LONG time. I appreciate her knowledge and positive vibe. She will be RUNNING the Twin Cities Marathon on 10/4 and is going for a BQ time!! Congrats to Robin. Please email me your address, sock size and color selection.

RACE TIME
The search is OVER for now I am will be dressing up as this for Halloween...

That's right I will be a Half-Marathon Runner... I paid my money and will be running the Frightfest Half Marathon in Rochester, WA on October 31st...Halloween (Details HERE). At just over half the price of the Seattle Half this will leave me more options for more races and fill my VOID of having nothing on my racing schedule. Countdown starts now. 10 miler this weekend.. YIPPEE!!!

Yay for new socks! I predict a very fast half for you. I am guessing a 1:38. With your speed work you have been doing, it is going to be a great race.

That's great you've picked a race and have a goal now to train for. I was very impressed with your 5K PR so I'm excited to see your HM time. You'll probably SMASH that too.

Looks like a good one!! Glad you got one on the schedule! Are you running today (right now?) or tomorrow? I have a 7 miler for tomorrow...maybe the Orting trail is calling my name to run with you and your best-bicycling-friend! Let me know if you want me to hit up the last 7 with you!
