Half Marathons

Posted on November 15, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Stephanie just clued me into the fact that there is going to be an inaugural Nike Women’s Half Marathon in D.C. in April.   There is a lottery to enter and it hasn’t even opened yet, but I want to enter and want in!   Several years ago I had heard about the Nike women’s race in San Francisco and I wasn’t much of a runner then, but was intrigued by all the great swag…hello Tiffany running jewelry!  I knew that it wasn’t likely that I’d really travel to SF or many far places for a half marathon, so I’m super psyched that I’ll have the chance to enter here!

I experimented last evening with dinner and made some chicken with a honey mustard dipping sauce I bought from my nephew’s school fundraiser.  I think it made the house smell a little funky, but actually tasted pretty good. I topped it too with this smoky chardonnay salt, it was definitely way too salty- I am not sure what that salt would be used on, maybe a bigger piece of meat.  I also made roasted broccoli and put red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper on it – so spicy and good!

I am pretty pumped for the Philly Half this weekend.  I still am not sure about a PR for me, but I’m mostly just excited to run through a city that I have visited many times before as a kid, but haven’t been to in so long.  Not to mention, I’ve been craving a Philly cheese steak since the moment I signed up for the race, I’ve got my eye on Jim’s for post half cheese steaks!

I’ve done my last run before Sunday, now I just have to carbo and candy load – oh wait, just carbs, I mean!
