Rock 'N' Roll Arizona!

I have some exciting news! I changed which marathon I am going to run in. I am now going to run the P.F. Chang's Rock 'N' Roll Arizona marathon. It is in Phoenix on January 13, 2008! Justin and I will be staying with the grandparents from January 11th through the 15th. I would absolutely love to see all my Phoenix family out at the race cheering me on! You can read more about the race at this link: http://www.rnraz.com/home.html. The course goes through Phoenix and Scottsdale and ends in Tempe.

After visiting Orlando last week and experiencing the 85 degree, muggy weather, I decided dry, cool Arizona weather would be much better for racing! Plus it will be great to see everyone. The race is really cool too with over 70 live bands on the course. It didn't interrupt my training either since the Rock 'N' Roll is the same day as the Disney marathon.

I am getting really excited although my training is getting tough. I ran 16 miles on Saturday. My longest run yet. I am thankful for my training partners even more as the miles get longer. I was pretty wiped out for the rest of day. This week is 15 miles so hopefully it will be a little easier.

Great! Come on down. Of course we'll cheer you on. I may need to go home for a while during it for a nap, but I promise I'll watch you for at least 2 minutes during the race. Maybe 1 at the beginning and 1 at the end. I think that's about how much I watched you in Ouray, too.
