How do I get talked into more races?? OK, last Saturday Coy and I are on a 17.5 mile run. She mentions running another FULL MARATHON!! What?? Are you kidding me? This will be our schedule of races:
Sunday, October 16 Louisville Water Tower Full Marathon
Sunday, October 23 Midway Half Marathon
Sunday, November 6 ING NYC Marathon
Sunday, November 20 Tough Mudder
WOW!! Of course I’m always up for a challenge and I said Heck Yeah!! The Water Tower Marathon we plan to take easy, just to get this miles in. Same with the Midway half. Now, on the NYC Marathon I’m planning on getting a PR by myself (that’s the real challenge for me!). The Tough Mudder on the other hand is just to make it through. It will be one tough mudder!! I am really looking forward to this fall race season.
Last night Maddie and Jacob had their first real Cross Country meet. They went to Frankfort with another family because I had to work and coach soccer practice. Tuesday when they were at CC practice Maddie ran the course in 11:44 and Jacob ran it in 12:40. I had my fingers crossed that they would both beat their time. Maddie sent me a text telling me she ran it in 10:09 and Jacob ran it in 9:13!!!! Maddie is 9 years old and Jacob is 8. I wish I could have ran this fast when I was their age. Maddie said she told herself to keep running for her Momma!! I loved hearing that from her. That meant a lot. Maddie tends to stop a lot during her 1 mile run but she learned how to pace herself and keep running the whole time. I think that is one of the hardest things to do for a beginner. I am so proud!!
