Mark Your Calendars

Happy Friday!!  I hope everyone had a good day and if not, well tomorrow is Saturday!   Go for a run!  I survived my day trip yesterday but man it was tiring.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I was in notary class.  It was for my renewal so realistically it should have been easy but sitting in a room for 8 hours sandwiched between 2 2+hour car trips and I was done.   The class was only 6 hours and the rest of the time was spent on registering, picture taking, finger printing and listening to the exam proctors drone on.  I actually made it through the day on one 20 oz Diet Coke, which was probably not good as I dozed off 4 times.   Oops!  Now just to wait for the results.    Odd note- my seminar was at the Santa Barbara Mission- who knew they had conference halls?

It’s time to start thinking of what races to run in the beginning of 2015.  What are you doing in April?   Come run with me!! Well and a couple thousand other people.   Last year I was lucky enough to an open call for Ambassador for the SLO Marathon pop up on Facebook.  I jumped at it and was lucky enough to be chosen.

Mile 4 ish?

Sweet! I met a great group of people and had an amazing weekend.    The scenery for the half marathon was awesome and I heard the full was even better.     Plus I love SLO which is why I spend many weekends there.  🙂IMG_4010

For 2015, I get to be an Ambassador again, woo hoo!   I am so excited.   I am also determined.  There’s a hill or 2 that I have some unfinished business with.    🙂  I know it’s early but if you’re looking for a great race, come visit!!    Plenty of planning time!! 🙂

And now it’s off to bed for me, I heading down to SLO in the morning.  🙂

How was your week?

Ever doze off more than once in the same seminar/ class?

Anyone racing this weekend?
