Running, Running... EVERYWHERE

I'll be out of pocket for a few days as I go with my sister to cheer on her boyfriend as he plays for my alma mater in the NCAA baseball tournament this weekend.  Go Blue Raiders!

Just wanted to give a quick shout out to all the lovely ladies that I know are running San Diego this weekend!  I was in SD in 2005 during the race and got to watch part of it, and I know you are in for a real treat.  Good luck to Danica (her first marathon!), Aron, Maritza, and anyone that I have forgotten because I know there are more I can't think of right now.

In other racing news, I signed up for a race today.  On July 4th.  In LONDON.

Heck yes, right?  Bennett and I found a 10-miler that we can easily get to on the subway, so we signed up for a whopping $13.50.  I have no idea what to expect since I've never run in another country, but it should be good times.  And hey, I promised myself I wouldn't slack too much on my first two weeks of marathon training just because I'm in Europe... having this race mixed in will help!
