I'm running the Bayshore Half Marathon this Saturday... and I'm totally winging it! I really should be more excited... it was a killer to get into, sold out in less than 24 hours. The course is beautiful along the upper coastline of the lower peninsula of Michigan with outstanding views of water. However I have absolutely no plan going into my 10th half. Coming off the full marathon earlier this month, I haven't been slacking on running, but I haven't really been training either. So we'll see what happens. We leave in a couple hours and I still have no idea what I'm even going to wear. This is so odd for me.
While I'm there, I am looking forward to meeting the founder of Sexy Mom's Running Club, who is graciously hosting my family's visit to Traverse City. My hubby even found a 5k for Memorial Day on Monday. Double race weekend? Why not!? I'm in a I love to run zone right now. I'm on Day 12 of a Run Streak and think I just may continue onward by participating in the RW Summer Running Streak (38 days from Memorial Day thru 4th of July). Watch for tweets with #RWRunStreak.

|Support the Troops|
This week, I joined TeamUSO for the Air Force Half Marathon (September). I didn't sign up for a free race entry to a sold out event; I already had my race entry. I signed up because I believe in the work of the USO. Their mission is simple: to lift the spirits of America's troops and their families. They take care of our troops while deployed and the families back home. They make "service before self" more manageable for American solidiers. I encourage you to read more about the USO here and you'll be Wow-ed. I've raised thousands of dollars for a variety of charities through the years, but I can honestly say I will be most proud of this one.
Join me for a Run Free Summer. I will be doing a variety of fun stuff throughout the summer to raise money in support our military. First up is some pretty cool looking running shirts if I do say so myself. Are you running a race for the 4th of July festivities? This sleeveless tank will be perfect for you (and your partner!) to show your patriotism. Pre-orders are now open until June 7 to guarantee your size. ORDER HERE.
