Race take 2

Hey loves. I have the day off today but there’s lots of home work to be done. Only two more weeks of this crap and then I’m done forever!! I skipped booty yesterday our of sheer exhaustion but today my ass was kicked. Though my legs aren’t sore, they were feeling weak after my workout. Gotta rest these puppies up because I’m running the Broad Street Run this Sunday. The Broad Street Run is a 10 mile race in Philadelphia. My sister asked me months ago if I wanted to run but my answer was, “hell no, it’s the weekend before finals”.  After running the half on Saturday my mind changed but registration was closed. 30, 000 people had already signed up for the race but my girl Liv saved the day. I “met” Liv through the blog world and she lives in the same town as my sister. Her mom has a friend that signed up for the race but can’t run for some reason so she HOOKED IT UP!!!!!! I’m SO freaking excited!

Though Len and I had a great time crossing the finish line together last weekend, he won’t be running with me on Sunday.

Stayed tuned for a giveaway later today!

    • Do I have long legs? I think it’s just the photo! They’re pretty stumpy.

  5. I am so impressed that you ran the half marathon. My boyfriend and I were going to do one. But he just wasn’t training. At all. So I called it off, because I wasn’t having him hurt himself on race day. I can’t wait for your giveaway. I may get to do my first one, soon! So excited!

  8. Ahhhhh good luck on the Broad Street Run!!! I wish I could do it but sadly it’s the week before my finals as well, and there’s no way my parents are going to make the trip to come get me twice in one week!! Wish I could be there to meet up!

  13. I’m doing Broad Street too 🙂 I’m a little worried by how many people are running this race and all the logistics of packet pick-up, race day parking, subway, shuttles, buses for our bags, etc. Once I actually make it to the starting line I think the rest will be cake 🙂
