Houston means that I'm one day close to you.
Closer to you. Oh baby Hoooooouston.
Now that that song is effectively stuck in your head...Guess what I'll be doing in 186 days?
Did you guess running, ne, racing the Houston Marathon? You're so smart. I have the smartest readers, really I do.
Well, I certainly hope to be running the Houston Marathon 186 days from today. This is the first year they've set it to a lottery. Eeep. I've got pretty good luck with lotteries. At least the racing kind. I got in to Nike Women's Marathon the first year I entered!
You can actually enter as a group so I set up a group and fingers crossed, me and several friends will be kickin' asphalt in H Town come late January. How cool will that be, running with my besties? I've already got it all planned out. Matching outfits, tutus...of course, they don't know this yet. (wink) I'll know August 17th. Which, incidentally is the day before I begin marathon training for the White Rock Marathon. Yep, I'm running WRM Dec 5 and then Houston Jan 30. Hey, that's 7 weeks. I'll use WRM as a training run. Houston is for PRs. (no pressure) Marathon season is upon us...
Houston means several things to me. A. It's flat as all get out. So I'll be setting myself up for that sub 5 I have my eye on. B. It's close. I don't have to fly to get there. Just an afternoon drive down the highway. C. This part is even better than a possible PR...it's home to fab bloggers Lauren, Kim and Melissa! Rumor has it that Kim might just be running her first full then!
My fingers are crossed and I'm getting that tutu all fluffed up...
