I was slightly panicked last night. You see I have had some foot/ankle pain, stiffness and weakness.. I barely felt like I could put my body weight on it for our 5K yesterday.. UGH! Hoping 2 days rest will help. After the run I put on my cheap JcPenney's skirt and ran to the mailbox, the seems were sharp and would cause major chaffage.. So I am not sure what I will be wearing.. I know I have loads of gear, just have to switch gears.
Tonight the FUN begins.. this is my Itinerary for the weekend. I hope to see/meet/cheer for you all at Rock N Roll Seattle
7:30PM- Another Mother Runner House PartyI will get my copy of "Train Like a Mother" signed by Tall Moms Sarah and Dimity. Buy your own copy and learn more about the authors HERE.
2:00 PM- Expo Shopping, Century Link Field
3:00 PM- Blogger Meet-up with John Bingham Expo Clinic Area.
This will be very informal, with John and me leading a quick discussion with time for all to chat after. We have 30 minutes in the expo area before the next clinic, after that we can move to another location to get to know each other better. HUGE thanks to RNR Seattle for giving us a place to meet. I will have Blank name tags and a list of Bloggers who I know will be present. No Swag, sorry I got too busy :(
DINNER- Brooks Running and Onlineshoes.com is hosting a small Blogger event. I feel truly blessed to be included in this fun event with local companies. Considering Brooks shoes/gear are my favorite this is MY event for sure!!
- FYI Onlineshoes.com will be hosting 12 Weeks of Summer GIVEAWAYS on their Blog, the first is on the Blog HERE. Go enter ASAP!
- Brooks Running has a GREAT newsletter if you have not signed up, be sure to do it!!
Saturday- 6/23- RACE DAY!!
6:30 AM- Pre-Race Photo- Meet at Corral #7 for a quick photo and to see what everyone is wearing so we can CHEER on the course!!
7:00 AM- Race Starts - Would be good to know all the Corral #’s so we can find each other. I will be in Corral #8 with Tiffany.
Run Run Run- We will have some Bloggy buddies along the course cheering us on. My goal is dependent on my foot and the HILLS. I am hoping for a 1:50-1:55 which would be a PR for the last 2 years.
Post-Race- Meetup at B for Blogger (weather dependent) for the Foil Blanket Party, photo ops, reload on food and to wait for the Full Marathoners to Finish.
That is what I have planned. I will be sure to take loads of photos. This is by FAR one of my favorite events of the year and it keeps getting better.
