Ok so I know I promised you some recaps from my birthday cruise last week but I haven’t had a chance to finish those posts yet. They are coming but I still need to finish sorting through and editing all of the photos I took (450+ photos is a lot). I do have some pretty exciting news that I wanted to share though.
A few weeks ago, I signed up for the random lottery drawing for the NWM Half Marathon in DC. Ever since I heard about the NWM races in San Francisco, I have wanted to run them because there is just something about receiving a Tiffany necklace from a man in a tuxedo as you cross the finish line of a race. These races are huge so I never really imagined that my entry would get chosen.
Yesterday afternoon, I received an email from Nike that said my entry was accepted. I was so excited that I couldn’t stop bouncing at my desk. I reread the email multiple times because I didn’t believe. When the other ladies in my group hadn’t received their emails, I really started to worry. Finally, I checked my credit card statement and was relieved to find a charge for the race entry fee. I was accepted into the Inaugural Nike Women’s Half Marathon in DC!
Now that reality had started to set in, there are a few things I still need to figure out.
How in the world am I going to get there? Flying or driving?
Where am I going to stay?
What training plan am I going to follow?
How to get in some hill training in Florida?
As I start figuring everything out, I will be sure to update you. I am super excited to have the opportunity to run this race on April 28th! I have a few more races between now and then so I need to stay focused on them.
