Run Run Runnnnn

Today I'm heading up north for a work meeting then flying back through Charlotte tomorrow, going to do the ole switch-a-roo of suitcases in the parking deck then cruise back inside and fly over to Nashville.

For this... 

Country Music Half Marathon.

Meeting some girlfriends there.  Tara, Kristen and I from Charlotte then my friend Kim is coming in from Dallas and Christin is coming from Memphis.  All of us are on three separate girl trips, ha!  Should be a good time!

Honestly I never thought I could do a race this long, my legs are built for playing sports, not distance running.  But for some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to keep adding a mile each week last Fall.  Then the girls had me start running with them and we've become a good lil group.  I'm not going for any record time, honestly I just want to have fun and finish.  There is a band every mile of the race and if I want to stop and take a picture, I will.  No records here, just a good time!

I was up all night last night dreaming that I was totally spastic before the race and I didn't even get my number until everyone else had already finished it.  I didn't even get to run, ahhhh!  Let's hope those dreams go away so I get enough sleep the next couple of nights ha! 

Yall have a great weekend!  Hopefully I'll be able to walk on the plane Sunday to return to Charlotte and tell yall how it was.  :)
