Number Nine

I registered for my ninth half marathon this morning - the Harvest Half on September 29.   I've been thinking for a while that I would really like Goofy to be my 10th half marathon but that meant that I was going to need one more between now and then.  Luckily, I also need to get in a 21k run around this time so with a little shift in my training plan I was able to work it in!

Speaking of training plans...due to this ridiculous heatwave right now, I missed my run last night.  Ok - I can't say "missed"..I skipped it in exchange for a strength workout and had the intention to run the 4.5k at 4am this morning...which didn't happen because I woke up at 3:30 am with Doodle and then spent a half hour looking at the window and asking myself over and over whether my headlamp was charged because it was awfully dark to be running up a highway without it.

Opting for safety, I missed the 4am call...but I intend to get it in tonight. I want to miss as few weekday runs as possible this training cycle.


  1. I've been thinking about signing up for that race, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. The hill near the end scares me!

  2. Love this! Nine! Goofy would have been 10 for me but I think its going to turn out to be #11 because I'm eyeing up the Victoria half now...

    1. Meh - do Victoria next year and we'll both have Goofy as #10. we could paint it on our shirts!
