Or is tiara more princess-appropriate?
Now that the Race for the Taste 10K has been successfully completed, I am debating on what my next race will be. I am thinking the new Wine and Dine Half Marathon (which has replaced the afore-mentioned 10K) is a definite choice, but it is nearly a whole year away. I know me-with that much time to "train," I will most likely slack off until a month or two before and then try and hurry up and add mileage. So, since my running high is still, well, high...I think I am going to go for the crown, er..tiara and I'm planning on doing the Princess Half Marathon in March 2010.
This race brings all my favorites: Disney princesses, pink clothes, a great benefit and a tiara medal. How can I go wrong?! But, before I race to sign up, I have to complete a mini-challenge: run 4 days a week for the next month and increase my mileage until I can run at least 7-8 miles at one time without wanting to throw a temper tantrum along the street. If I pass, I can sign up by November 15, if not, then no tiara for me.
So that is my running challenge for the next month. I am doing this because, although the 10K was lots of fun, it was a lot of hard work for this former sprinter to handle since me and distance running have it out for each other. I shall overcome!
Maybe if I wear my medal when running, I'll become more inspired. Hmmm....
