Summmmmmmmmmmer

Yes, it is officially today is the first day of summer.  The beautiful glowing ball in the sky decided that it was going to shin on us today! It was a wonderful sight to see even if I was up at 5AM getting my work out on with P90X KenpoX.

Do you ever get race envy? I never thought I would but I am actually getting a little jealous of everyone who will be running the RnR in Seattle this weekend. Its crazy, even if I had a chance to run under someone else number I would not be ready for it, but I still kind of want to. Yesterday, I started looking at other half marathons in Seattle and stumbled on the Seattle Marathon, which also has a half.  The course looks nice and I ran a few miles of it on a 5K this month and really enjoyed the lake view.  I need to print out a calender and map out a training schedule to see if it will work for me or maybe I should just jump at it and sign up.

So do you ever get race envy? Any races on your wish list to run?

  2. I get race envy often. My budget and time crunches don't allow too many races in my schedule, so I live vicariously through other people's races. I would LOVE to do the Green Bay Cellcom Marathon or 1/2. I'm a huge Packers fan, and that race ends up in Lambeau Field. I'm hoping to run it next May, but we'll have to see if the 2000 mile trip is in the budget.

  3. Yes, especially in race season. But I agree with jen...the budget thing is killing me!!

  4. Oh yes, race envy and me are good friends. Glad I'm not alone.

  5. The Seattle Half in November is a good one. You get to run on the freeway, and in the Express Lane tunnels.
    I wrote a review of last year's race on my blog, check out the Completed Half recaps tab.

    Anyway, I do have race envy too. I want to be a part of the Seattle Half this weekend, but I don't really want to run from Tukwila to Seattle and figure out the logistics of it all.

  7. I do get some race envy, especially as running has been such a bummer for me lately. I actually find myself getting biking envy when I watch the tours!
