Friday Race Salute!!

I think everyone and their mother is racing this weekend!!  Who can blame us?  For most of the country, it's perfect fall weather... nice and cool, where all that hot training in the summer sun is finally showing some speed!  Good Luck everyone!

First of all, BIG KUDOS to.... Danielle, Racheland BadgerGirl at the Fox Cities Marathon on Sunday!!  I ran the Half in Appleton, WI last fall.  The course is excellent, race organization is top-notch, wonderful crowds and perfect weather.  It still stands as my "best race," even though I've since beaten the time.  Danielle is running her very first Half-Marathon.  I nudged her last spring to register, and have enjoyed watching her training progress all summer on facebook.  Rachel is running her first FULL marathon.  We did a 16 mile long run together when I was on vacation in Wisconsin (see story here).  Best running mate ever!  I wish her all the best and look forward to the race recap.
Rachel and I after 16 in June

Lots of bloggers running the You Go Girl! Half Marathon & 10K in Tacoma!  Good Luck to Kim, Carla, Mel, Kerrie and the many more ladies I know are out there!  Both Kim & Kerrie are shooting for their first sub-2.  I hope they rock it so they can share the secret with me...

SuperMomE12 @ See Mom Run Far will be at the Top of Utah Mountain Marathon on Saturday, trying to get under 3:30 for the marathon... Holy snikes! That's fast!

Last but not least, all my SOLE SISTERS who will be running with me in the Morton Pumpkin Classic 10K and 2mile race on Saturday.  There are so many of us running... I'm sure I'll miss a few, but here goes... GOOD LUCK to Bekah (read her story here), Anna, Stephanie, Dianne, Kathleen, Deanna, Monica, Karyn, Gail, Robyn, Tracy, Susan, Lindsey, Laura (x2), Jennifer (x2), Toby, Fro, Nicole, Patty, Crystal, Cami, Kassie, Stacey, Heather and me!
