1. Phoenix Marathon
Um.... Where did the time go?! How in the world is this race LESS THAN A MONTH away?! Holy crapoly! I mean, really, I signed up for this race back in August! Let's be honest, I am beyond STOKED to meet and hang out with so many amazing runners [DUH, IT WILL BE THE PARTY OF 2015!], but at the same time, I might be slightly intimidated by the race and the goal I am shooting for...
Unfortunately if you haven't registered for the full marathon, you have missed the bus because it is SOLD OUT (I told you it would happen, so don't blame me if you didn't get in)! There are a few last spots available for the half, but I'd jump on them like NOW because they won't last!
2. Listening To Your Body
Listening to your body is easy... when your body tells you to #RunAllDay... but it is another story when it tells you to slow down and take a day (or three) off... I am proud to say I am trying to tune into how my body is feeling a bit more these days, but that doesn't make it any easier when it tells you to take an unscheduled rest day in the midst of your training plan.
(Just in case you missed my note on Tuesday, my heel has been giving me a little issue since the weekend. Seems more like a bruise than anything but I still want to make sure I am helping it get back to 100% than hurting it. Today it did feel a lot better, but knew one more day off before pounding the pavement was what a "smart runner" would do.)
3. My Dad Needs Bail
My dad is currently raising "bail" for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. (I was slightly freaked out when I got his text yesterday including his inmate photo, but quickly realized it was a metaphor!) If you'd like to donate $5, $10, or even $20 to the cause, please check out his donor page here (it will be up through the end of February).
3.5 Rock 'n' Roll Races
Okay, okay, maybe this is number four, but "Four Things Thursday" didn't have quite the same ring to it and I wanted to post about this ASAP so I could HELP SAVE YOU MONEY! Today
Prices increase on February 1st for the half and full, so I wanted to at least give you the heads up about it! Also, it appears as though everyone got the memo to become a Rock 'n' Roll Ambassador (I'm not one of the cool kids), which means a TON of discount codes are floating around! So if you register for the half or full TODAY you can save $30 ($15 with one of the many coupon codes and $15 before the prices increase on Sunday)! YOU KNOW YOU WANNA JOIN ME, right?!
What is the most recent race you have registered for?
