February 2013 Racing Thread (Read 85 times)

    I’ve seen this in other places around here and thought we could do this in the B&B. Maybe it could be stickied.

    It seems like a good way to have motivation, accountability and encouragement.

     

    So, gimme the following:

    Your name, date of race, name of race, race location, your race goal.

     

    If you’ve already run a race in February, post it (both goal and result) and I’ll put it on the list.

                Well my race tomorrow will be postponed, no date yet. I have a sneaky suspicion it'll fall on Disney Princess. BUT that'll be ok. I already got my shirt and it's a good charity, so if I can't run it no biggie. Which means that Sunday I can race that one all out (it's flat but I was worried I would be hurting too much after Saturday's run). Yay!
