My running buddy L. has a very bad influence over me. LOL. Maybe she is just enabling me to get back into my race mojo, so that’s good influence actually. 🙂
After my rant about Nike+ (still sucks) yesterday, I figured it’s time to move on and find new races. In comes the US Half Marathon in San Francisco in November. We will be crossing the Golden Gate Bridge (YEAH!) and are promised beautiful views over the San Francisco skyline, the Bay and national parks. I am loving the sound of this one.
The Nike Women’s Half Marathon will hence become my training race for this one. I am running SF this year! Can’t wait for both races and I am sure I will love both for very different reasons. Before that a few more weeks of grueling training. Track training tomorrow. Hill training on Thursday. And a Nike race preview run on Saturday. Bring. It. On!
“Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must move faster than the lion or it will not survive. Every morning a lion wakes up and it knows it must move faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve. It doesn’t matter if you are the lion or the gazelle, when the sun comes up, you better be moving.”
