Here's where you find out I might be just a little bit nuts. So you know I'm doing the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 marathon....but what you don't know is that 3 weeks later I'm also doing the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 marathon. That's right, this couch potato is doing a marathon in June. BECAUSE I AM CRAZY.

It's all my sister's fault. We decided to go on a trip together, picked Seattle as our destination, and somehow my suggestion of "hey, let's do a 5k while we're there" turned into doing a 1/2 marathon. Then I went to the Team in Training info meeting with my friend and decided that I could raise $3k for San Diego but $5k for Seattle was daunting.

By doing two Rock 'n' Roll races in the same year I am going to get this super awesome medal. I think I will wear it around my neck every day, like Flava Flav and his clock.


  1. So how long have you been running? What are you up to? Do you use a training program of some sort? I'm doing the COuch to 5K right now (has an AWESOME app for the iphone) but Jennifer and I are doing the Houseon 1/2 Marathon in January, so once I finish the C25K program I'm not sure where to continue to. Of course, I'm only on week 3 of my program, so it's not like I'm in a big hurry. haha!!!!

    Also - thanks for the song ideas!!!!!!!


  2. I am so jealous! I did the Dallas Rock & Roll, but sadly it was as a relay team so I won't get any of the bling. I guess, I could sign up for the San Antonio half in November and get my bling at that time.

  3. This is amazing, Liz! AMAZING! I'm so impressed! And also, jealous because I don't have that running thing in me anymore. (Okay, I'm probably just making that up because I haven't tried in a long time but I don't think my knees could take it...) So you have to raise funds for the Seattle run, too? Can you put another fund raiser thing on your page or FB so we can donate to the second one? :)
