Three Things Thursday

1. To start off... My dear sis hasn't been feeling super great lately. She's been a little sickly over the last couple days. So, leave her some love in a comment? I know she would love, love, LOVE the encouragement!

2. In less than 48 hours, I will be toeing the line at the 15th Annual Indianapolis Marathon & Half Marathon. Its getting a little scary, folks!

I have decided to step out of my comfort zone and attempt to run with the 2:15 pace group. I am allowing myself to drop out later in the race, if I feel the absolute need. Otherwise, I'm banking on the adrenaline rush and excitement of the race to get me through those 13.1 miles at that pace. Based on a few online race pace predictors, one of such being from McMillan Running, I would be capable of running a 2:15 - 2:20 half marathon. One calculator I stumbled upon yesterday even gave me a prediction of 2:10! I'm not counting on that one though.

I have had awesome support from my hubs with this race. He has been telling me that he thinks I'll be able to run with the 2:15 pace group without a problem. Oh, the faith he has in me! I love him to death, I really do!

3. With Halloween coming up, and us now having a baby to dress up, we're in the full Halloween spirit this year. I'm really excited for this year (I've NEVER been a big fan of Halloween, except for the candy). Ryder will be dressing up as a monkey, and Steve will have a banana costume. It'll be super cute! Its still up in the air as to whether I will also be wearing a banana costume, or going with something non-banana/monkey-themed, ie cheaper, like an M&M's Dark Chocolate Tank Dress that I found. I do love M&M's and I do love dark chocolate. This costume would be quite fitting.

There's my Thursday Three! Now, I wonder if maybe the Sis will chime in with her Three Things? (hint, hint, wink, wink, Ann... love you!)

  1. You could be the banana and your husband could be the "Man with the Yellow Hat" from Curious George. Or you could be a coconut. ;)
