I'm still not sure what possessed me to sign up for two half marathons within two weeks of each other, but I did it, I race walked them, finished them, and, most importantly, earned two new medals to add to my collection! The Long Branch Half Marathon with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training on May 6th, followed by the Super Hero Half Marathon in Morris Township, NJ on May 20th.
Now I get to take it "easy". "Easy" as in no half marathons for at least another 4 months (the Hershey Half on 10/21 is looking very interesting) or major fundraising efforts for at least another 6 months. (I may reconsider that if Team in Training is doing the Disney Half in January 2013.)
Next up on my race schedule is The Color Run 5K with my niece, Erica. It will be her first race, and I signed us both up as soon as registration opened this past Wednesday. By the end of the race, we're both going to look like Walt Disney threw up all over us. VERY cool! :-)
