A blog about my journey of training to run a 1/2 marathon with Team In Training and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and beyond.

Holy Cheeze Whiz!

Last time I checked it was October, now here it is almost Thanksgiving. I should be excited, but a big scary something stands between me and my happy Turkey day. The Route 66 half-marathon. ugh!!! The course is hilly and I have been slacker training. I'm getting my butt kicked this Sunday. But as always, if I have to crawl across that finish line I will. : ) I am heading out with two of the coolest chicas alive. K and A are going to crush this race. I am so proud of K is doing such an awesome job. She is going to show her first half who's boss. And then possibly drag me back to the car. : )  So.... my bags are packed, my iPod loaded, and strategy picked out. Only thing left is to ask everyone to pray for me and an under 4 hour finish! LOL : ) Below is my carefully selected playlist and quite possibly my driving force to finish.
