Three Things Thursday



Are you thinking about signing up for The San Francisco Marathon but haven’t yet?  DO IT TODAY!  I have a discount code for $10 off that expires at midnight.  You know you want to come to California for the big party that runs around the city and across the Golden Gate Bridge!

Expires: 3/31/2011 at 11:59pm
Good for: $10 off the Full or either Half Marathon

Pretty please?!



This little blog is now showing up on a very big blog that I am one of the “reporters” for!  It’s so crazy to see my face on Nike! 

I have written 3 posts as part of the Nike Women’s Make Yourself Movement and “Make Healthy a Part of You” is up on the Nike Women Blog – pretty exciting huh?

My 3 Nike MYM Posts:
Make Yourself
Make Healthy a Part of You
My First Running Idol



I noticed I have some rituals I always do during taper, a few were listed in my taper rules, but a few I don’t really notice or think to acknowledge.  When I stop to think about what I am doing though, I notice there are some things I always do the same time during taper.

One thing I always do during my first week of taper, is to start breaking in my race shoes!  I took my marathon shoes on their first run this week and they felt so good… there is nothing like the first run in new shoes.

I am sure I will continue to notice other rituals over the next couple weeks.  Am I the only one that does that?

March recap coming tonight!  It was a good month.

    1- I really wish I could run that race- too far away for the budget this year

    2- Very cool to see your own face on the Nike website! Congratulations :)

    3- Is one of your rituals “go batshit crazy” or is that just my husband? ;-)

    So cool to be featured on Nike! It’s well-deserved, that’s for sure!!

    I just started brekaing in a new pair of shoes this week and immediately ordered another pair, thinking ‘I’ll need new ones for when taper starts!’ hehe

    My budget is up for mega traveling to race yet. But maybe someday the west coast will be an option.

    Congrats on being a celeb! I’m hopping over to read them now. (well, after this comment is finished)

    I habit is to usually leave thing to the last minute and then stress out. heehee
