GIFT GIVING PLANS:
Yesterday I had an amazing Lunch Run with Kerrie. Read her recap HERE. We work just 1.3 miles away so I ran to pick her up, we strutted together for about 30 minutes and I dropped her off. This run was in a word RELAXING! The path we randomly happened upon (a hidden OASIS) is a wooden plank raised bridge above an overflowing wetland marsh. I have never been on the path before, but I plan to return many many times. AMAZING!! Kerrie planned ahead and brought her camera.. CHEESE!!
2010 RACE PLANS:
As you know I am a PLANNER!! I have been on countless websites trying to decide which of my racing options will be best for 2010. Around March we plan to sell the Tall Mom House and move closer to my office...which will make the budget and time a little tight.. As I am always focused on balancing Time/Money/Family, I have come to a tentative PLAN.

*Marathon Redemption. The Fleet Feet Marathon training program starting on January 9th will prepare me to traverse the Hills of T-Town. The low cost of entry fee $60 and 30 minute drive are great on budget and time. And being a local race I am HOPING that I will have a cheering section...note: I love big bright signs and to have my picture taken.

Capital City Half Marathon
*This race was my first Half Marathon, both Muscle Man and I loved the whole experience. A Small, well-organized race, in the Capital City, with great race shirts and a downhill Finish Line. Hopefully I can recruit Muscle Man to run this one with me. Honey??
TBD June 2010

Rock 'N' Roll Seattle Marathon
*Running with Shelby for her First Marathon. I told myself I would NEVER do this race again. It is TOUGH. But I want my running buddy to have the best first Marathon EVER. So I will be there with her, at her pace for 26.2. I am so excited to see what we can do together!!
- I know there will be 5K's, 10K's and many other races added in here with options to run races in the Portland area as well. If anyone wants to buy me a GREAT Christmas Gift entry to any of these races would be AWESOME!! LOL..
- In 2010 I will try for PR's yes...lord knows I love to push my limits. But as you can see most of my races will be run with friends and family...which I truly believe will make for cherished memories.
