Race Weekend

Guess what time it is?

Triple Lakes Trail Run time!

(You can read about last year's race here)

This will be my 4th year participating in the event.  This has always been a Girl's Weekend race and is an excuse for us to meet up and hang out, eat like food is going out of style, and race like we've never raced before. 

Each year we add a couple to our group, and each year a couple drop out.  This year it will only be a few, and mostly the core.  You may remember this group from the Ashley's Army Fitness Challenge days.  These are the women who inspire me and keep me active.  And I couldn't be more excited to spend the weekend with them!

So though my random and very odd flu-like symptoms have not disappeared (despite the doctor's diagnosis and prescription for allergy meds) I am choosing to have a positive attitude.  I will kick the butt out of those 8 miles tomorrow regardless!  (Now the 1/2 Mary on Sunday is another story altogether! We will cross that bridge when we get there!)

In preparation for our race weekend, my friend Angie is staying with me.  She drove in from Ohio yesterday and will be hanging out all next week as well!
Angie is my partner in (running) crime and I have missed her companionship since she moved earlier this year.  You may remember her from past races such as the mud run:
I just found out that we are both the first leg on our relay teams tomorrow so we will even get to run together.  Luckily for me, she just battled some sort of cold last week and is in the same recovery boat as I am.  Should make for an interesting run! 

So today I must get work done since yesterday turned into a sick day.  Then I still need to pack and be on my way! 

What are you up to this weekend?  Any fun plans?  Any races?

If you get a chance, check out this race that my friends Shannon and Elizabeth are trying to talk me into!
