‘Tis the Season!!

No…not THAT season (but that one’s coming too!!) – it’s Fall Marathon season. This is the time of year that all runners look forward to and train for and worry about!

I guess my “season” started with the Disneyland Half Marathon back on Labor Day weekend — for the first time I did the entire 13.1 with a friend, and even though we didn’t chat much at all I could really feel a difference.

Then, I headed down to Florida to run the first Volition Half marathon in Orlando.

Of course I had to spend some time with my fabulous friends Angela and Nate. And Na’Cho. And since I wasn’t staying on Walt Diseny World property, our good phriend Phred came along –

The weekend after we got home from Florida I joined some of my running group in tackling the first ever East Coast Beat the Blerch “race” – the biggest draw for me was — Cake. On the course. At the aid stations. Real Cake.

Also cake at the finish line…LOTS of cake!!

Apart from the cake, and the friends, this wasn’t an awesome success for me – advertised as having “some ‘legit’ trails” it actually had *some* legit ROAD – 96% of the course was trail running. Technical, uphill, some downhill, roots, rocks and fallen trees technical. Needless to say, there was not a ton of running but I hung out with a couple of friends for the entire 13.1 (or, if you want to take my Map My Run’s word for it, 33.88) miles 🙂

But now, the season really starts to come alive!

And with that, the perpetual question — WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR?!?!?

Later this week I will share all of my planned running outfits, and you can bet there’s gonna be a ton of Skirt Sports!
