- Eat more fruits and veggies... in fact, as of three days ago, I'm a vegetarian. I'm going to go month-by-month on the whole vegetarian thing. I'm trying it out to see if being a vegetarian makes me feel any different.
- Eat more raw foods
- Drink at least 60 ounces of water everyday
- Cut back on sugar
- Ride and Run a total of 2010 combined miles
- Strengthen my core, ankles & feet, and upper body
- Join a running group
- Run or cross-train five days a week
- Get custom orthotics if current injury-eliminating endeavors don't work
- Get clean laundry put away before the pile turns into Mt. Everest
San Diego Rock 'n' Roll 2010
It looks* as if the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon is now going to offer a half-marathon option. If that is true, all I can say is: "WOO-HOO!" I am not interested in doing another full marathon... at least not at this time... so I thought I was done with the SDRnR forever. If the half is an option, I am 99% sure I will sign up.
*I'm confused because I received a flier from the race organizers that made it look as if they are offering a half. There is also an ad in this months Runner's World and it says the same thing. On the other hand, the Rock 'n' Roll website mentions nothing about a half and doesn't list it on the registration page. What is up?!
Surf City Half Marathon
I am not ready for this one. I should be much further along in my training but because of various set-backs, I'm not. I really want to do this half but I'm trying to decide if pulling off another "barely finished" will be worth the expense of staying at a hotel for the weekend. Guitar Hero and I were going to make a getaway weekend out of it and stay at one of the nicer hotels near the start.
I would still be all for having a getaway weekend, barely finishing, and just having fun... except our 15 year anniversary is a couple weeks later and I'd rather use the money to go somewhere more appealing (to us) than Huntington Beach. I would feel differently if I knew I could do the race, give it my all, and still enjoy my time with my husband.
Basically, if I do this one, I'll pretty much be walking it just so I can get my cool surfboard medal and the long-sleeved tech shirt. Those things aren't worth the $500+ we would have to spend for accommodations and food.
My other option is to drive up to the race early that morning, do the race, and drive home. If anyone is planning to do the Surf City and is planning on driving up the morning of the race and wants to carpool, let me know.
Well, that's all for now! Enjoy your weekend!
