Ok - so I finished Goofy...and then, even though I recovered pretty quick - suddenly going from massive long runs to under 5k at a time as thrown me right out of whack.
So I got it into my head that I need races. I'm a race junkie and I need a hit of that sweet, sweet start line.
I put a call out on twitter, lamenting the fact that there are no races in Calgary this time of year...and Leana answered the call and told me about a 5miler on Feb 10. Best of all - it has Crave Cupcakes involved. And is only $25!
I couldn't sign up for the Crave Chick Chaser 5 miler fast enough. It's going to be a small race, but there's bound to be cupcakes involved...and I've never done a 5 miler before. Woot! Instant PR!!!! And the girls get a 4 minute head start! Maybe I can win! (HA - not even a little likely)
Then, tonight I set up my family team for the Sport Chek Mother's Day Run and Walk. Each year we run this race in support of the Calgary NICUs that supported our twins in their first eight days. Best of all, we do it with as many friends and family as want to join us! This year, I am particularly excited for the race because it is the first 5k my girls will run with their own two feet! We are all excited to start training for it!
I am working to straighten out a team password issue, but if you are interested in joining our family team - just let me know and I will make sure you are on the list when I send out the registration information :)
So, now I have more to look forward to...my race calendar for 2013 is starting to fill up...and I LOVE IT!
