Today is 11/11/11. I bet there are a ton of weddings today. Speaking of which, I’m sure everyone read about the NYC marathoners that got married at Mile 22. And finished in 3:54. I wonder why they chose Mile 22. Is anyone still having fun at Mile 22? And is this becoming a trend? Oiselle makes a “runaway bride dress” specifically for the purpose of getting married on the run.
I have been a lazy sloth all week. My 12K is tomorrow so I have been “resting” my legs. I debated all week about where to fit in my long run – Friday or Sunday. I don’t want to tire my legs for tomorrow’s race but Sunday we have plans and I would have to get up super early in order to fit in a long run. I’ve decided to forego a long run this week, even though the Philly Half is next weekend. I’m going to run 8 miles today, nice and easy, and will put in a few miles on Sunday morning. Or rest. We’ll see.
I’m excited that tomorrow’s 12K is chip timed! Woo hoo! I don’t have to worry about standing in the front and getting caught up with all the speedy runners.
I’m also terribly nervous for tomorrow’s race. The shorter the distance, the more nervous I get. I hate pain.
Did you get married on a specific date because of meaning (i.e., day you met) or because of numbers (i.e., 11-11-11)? We got married on 7-25-09 which didn’t have any meaning but I secretly liked the “25” aspect of it. And I wanted to get married in the summer.
Which makes you more nervous – longer races or shorter races? I guess 5Ks and 10Ks wouldn’t scare me so much if I did them more often. I just hate the running-until-you-puke feeling. I still get nervous for marathons but it’s a different kind of nervous, if that makes sense.
