On February 11, 2012 we ran the Run for the Cookies 5K. That is one of my favorite races in Tallahassee. It's an easy flat course and one of the first 5K's I ran back in 2010, when I decided to get serious about my running. I had completed many 5K's and somehow along the way I convinced myself I could venture into the half marathon world.

Now, this Sunday, February 10, 2013 I will run my 6th half marathon with my best running buddy and 2 other running friends. It's very surreal for me to think this journey is still happening! I'm just as much of a wreck this race week as I was a year ago! I'm a little better equipped for running 13.1 without any major issues. I still do not know exactly what to expect at this race or this area. We know there is a bridge; however, we aren't exactly sure how high that bridge may be - oh my this bridge thing is killing me! I'm a bit more sore this year leading up to this "anniversary" race than I would like to be but such is life. I have spent much of the week working on my core and upper body strength. As I spend the rest of this week "resting" my legs for this race these thoughts weigh heavily on my mind...
Stay tuned for a post race update with all the fun details and photos of our trip the RnR race expo and RnR race day. Who knows what we will get suckered into this expo!!!
