Friday Randomness

Happy Friday everyone! Sorry for the silence most of the week, but I have awesome news – I have decided to re-enter the oil field, and accepted a new position with my old company! The past few months of doing sales full-time have been fun, but when it came down to it, my career passion is supply chain management. I love it more than anything else! I started my new job earlier this week so life has been majorly busy, and blogging took a bit of a back seat, but hey, I’m here now, right?! :0)

I’m sure most of you have seen by now that runDisney posted the Wine & Dine half marathon corrals and waivers – I’ll be in Corral E! Anyone going to be joining me?

In other VERY exciting news,  my awesome friend Courtney is running her VERY FIRST FULL MARATHON this Sunday!! Everyone should go to her blog and wish her the very best of luck (not that she needs it though because she is going to do great no matter what)!! GO COURTNEY!

Also happening this weekend – I have two races! It’s my first weekend of racing since April. That is a long time people…darn ITBS! Robert and I decided to register the other day for the Monster Mash 10K (I figure we both have long runs this weekend, so why not dress up, have fun, and get a medal for it?). Then on Sunday we are doing the Oktoberfest Triathlon. My goal for both races is to take it slow, stay strong and pain-free, and just enjoy myself!

Monster Mash medal!

QOTD: What are your plans this weekend?

  2. That's a great medal! Seriously, 10k's need to happen more. My plan is to run tomorrow, but depending on the weather, it may be inside on the dreadmill :-/ My PT place wants me running twice a week now so I'll be adding more running into my schedule.

  4. We have a Monster 5k tomorrow! It's a teeny local event, but it's for Autism awareness so they give out little puzzle piece finisher medals to everyone.
