OK, I admit I do have a few things between me and the actual race, but yesterday I managed to get registered for the Marine Corps 17.75. If you get in (it sold out in about 7 minutes!) and you FINISH the race, you get the golden ticket AKA an entry into the Marine Corps Marathon!!!
Now I just need to figure out how to train around this race. It’s right at the end of one of my heaviest training weeks – I’m supposed to run 19 and 15 back to back. 17.75 K is only 11 miles + Shoo has a field trip + the boys and I leave that night for my parents… I have a feeling that week is going to be 19, 15, 4, 11, 3. Oy. At least it will be good training for when I run back to back races followed by Ragnar 5 days later.
Why, yes, I have entered a new level of crazy…
Speaking of crazy training weeks, I’m running 18 miles on Friday and then running RNR DC half marathon on Saturday. Meanwhile, Shoo has a Friday night event, Jones has district assessment for Orchestra on Saturday, and then we have a beer dinner on Sunday. At least soccer season hasn’t started yet.
