I can’t wait for the new season to start tomorrow! Okay, well it technically started last week. We had our kick off party last Thursday and I got to meet some of the new teammates. I’ve talked with some of my mentees and hopefully I will be able to meet some of them in person.
This season they are trying something a little bit different for the first 8 or so weeks of practice. Rather than have a set mileage for the first several weeks of practive, we have a set time instead. The time is supposed to be for people who are not used to being on their feet for an extended period of time. Tomorrow is a 35 minute workout. I am going to try to run the whole thing and see how far I can get. It will be different running without Rachel, so I may try to convince Tara (our Broad Street coach) to run with me. She is perfectly willing to run at my pace (and maybe push me a little bit). I really hope to be able to run the whole Philly Rock & Roll half in September.
Oh yeah! I also signed up for the Wine & Dine half in Disney on October 2! It is a nighttime race which starts at 10 pm. Yikes! The course sounds to be similar to the second half of the WDW marathon. I can’t wait! (I use too many exclamation points. I need to work on that…)
