Thinking Out Loud Thursday

It’s Thursday so that only means one thing….

Thinking-Out-LoudSo this week’s been our first week back since all our snow and they are calling for an icy start on Friday.  NOOOOO! After yesterday’s 70+ degree day, it’s so hard to believe that today is going to be so nasty and cold.  I’m over this mess. I’m fairly certain that by mid-July we’ll all be wishing for colder temps. We always wish for things we don’t have!  I just want to wear tank tops and skirts.  I want to feel that warm sun!  Spring, please hurry up!winter

Speaking for Spring, I also have a birthday this month.  The big 4-1!  I was just thinking in the shower (I do all my best thinking in there!) about how awesome this past year has been.  40 was awesome!!  I still think about all the things that I’ve done this year and the experiences I’ve had.  I’m so thankful and blessed to have been able to do it all!  I really achieved some awesome things which have only inspired me to continue to do more.  I want more.  I deserve more.40

Speaking of more, there will be more pacing in my life!!  Unfortunately due to a course problem, the City of the Arts half has been canceled.  It’s an absolute shame!  Some really good people worked really hard to put together a great race and there just wasn’t a way to pull it off.  Between construction and less than willing locations, it’s been postponed until 2016.  That means no pacing.


I check my inbox yesterday and there is an email about pacing opportunities for upcoming Race 13.1 events.  They have added a ton of races this year and they need pacers for just about all of them.  I quickly looked through the list and saw that Race 13.1 Evans GA needed a slew of them.  I texted some friends and we all jumped on the opportunity immediately.  I’ll be pacing the 2:15 group and Cara and Christine are teamed up to pace 2:30.  And the exciting part of all this, I add another state!!!  Right now I’ve run halfs/fulls in NC, SC, VA, MD, DC, and FL.  This will give me GA. 🙂  Not only will I have another state, but by pacing Evans, I will have three Race 13.1 races so I’ll earn the special X3 medal!!  It’s all about the bling!!1424205358_EvansMedal_Final

Only 10 more days and I will run my 6th marathon.  I’m super excited and a bit nervous (but more good nervous vs bad nervous).  I’m looking forward to crossing another finish line and spending some time with great friends.  It’s a win in my book already!

So what’s on your mind?  What are you thinking about?
