1. Tomorrow I'm running the Madison Mini Marathon (it's a half marathon - yeah, I think the name is weird too). I haven't run it before, but I've heard it's a great course and there are a lot of perks. Apparently it's the #14 best half marathon in the country.
I think my race strategy will be to test out the pace that Mattie and I are planning to run for the marathon - 9:55 pace. Unless I feel exceptionally good tomorrow morning, you can plan on seeing me cross the finish line around 2:10. That also means I won't be too worn out to enjoy the birthday party they are throwing me at the Memorial Union after the race.
(What's that? It's a post race party and not a birthday party? Oh, we shall see...)
2. Last night there were 3 birthday presents waiting in the mail for me! Man, did I feel special. My parents and my sister sure spoiled me. Also, check out the custom card I got with my gifts from Kim and Data:
It meowed 'Happy Birthday' - I think Leo and Sox thought it was their birthday when they heard it!
3. Since I give in easily to peer pressure, I am going to attempt to host a link-up for Demotivational Monday next week. All you have to do is make your own demotivational image and link up when I get the post up (Oy, I hope it ends up being that easy). I know all you cynical bitches have some gems already forming in your mind. I can't wait to see what we come up with!
I obviously didn't make this one...but it's one of my favorites.
Have a wonderful weekend! Anyone else racing or doing long runs?
