best part of my day...

First off... I am doing that trail half. All of you are right, and thanks for you input, much appreciated. I need to go with what I feel, and honestly, I really want to do it. Yeah it sounds scary and intimidating, but if I can run a marathon, I can do a trail half! Sure, why not?! It will be fun and interesting and different and new. Plus all of us girls doing the half (a few are doing the 5K, hopefully we will get to run a little with them) decided to go out and have fun. I think we we will all just sort of stick together (which is not something any of us have a policy of doing), slug it out, walk if we have too, laugh (and take pictures) when we fall, and have a fun Saturday morning.

Second, we hit Tarreee-get (anyone who gets this gets a gold star) and checked out right before close. I think we have Ed all squared away on everything he needs for BAK for the first half of the race. They only give him so much space, so I'll be taking him more supplies next Wednesday night. Tomorrow we just have to get it packed up, pick up his Juice Plus powder supplies and he will be good to go. The stress levels are lowering in the Robinson household. Whew.

Third, I hit my speed work today! WHOO-HOO, more on that tomorrow (and yes, probably more empty promises, my life feels too busy lately!)

Fourth... and the best, drum roll pleaeeeaassseee.... time to go to bed. Yeah, I just wanted to be dramatic about it.

Glad to hear you are going with what you want to do. Trail races really aren't about PR's and time, it is more about the challenge and fun.

Its good for you to go with what you feel is best. I am sure you can handle the half! Hope the speed work went well. I did a track workout this morning and it always seems to give me more energy after I finish it!
