Thursday thanks

Today I am thankful for:
Learning about the incredible $55 discount off of the Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans half. If memory serves, I have Gracie (Complicated Day) to thank for that...

Why am I thankful for that tidbit of information?
Because I'm going to one of my favorite cities in the whole wide world to meet up with friends from all over the country and run my 2nd half marathon of the year.

To a running geek and travel addict, a weekend just doesn't get any better than that.

I've definitely got the race/travel buzz today. I bounded out of bed at 6:30am, started a load of laundry so my favorite race-day shorts will be ready to pack, and printed my registration confirmation sheet. That last task made me laugh.

The Competitor Group thinks I'm faster than I really am right now:  predicted finish time 1:55.
I wish!
This is a race-cation. I shall be eating my weight in oysters before the 13.1. That is surely going to slow me down. But either way, I got to keep on movin'...

PS - You're welcome for that musical masterpiece and LSD-like flashback to the 80s.
(Did we really dress like that back then???)

What are you thankful for this week?
And what song is stuck in your head right now?


  1. AWESOME sounds like you are more then ready to get going on your race-cations! How fun!!

  2. That video is hilarious! And now the song is stuck in my head, thanks.

    Have a great time this weekend and a great race!

  3. Yes, we really DID dress like that back then, hahahaha! Have a great time!

  4. well now I have Break my Stride stuck in my head! Thanks for that! ah the 80's - seriously what were we thinking? Have a great time in NOLA!
