Instead of a long drive for this one, I have a quick flight from Peoria into Atlanta (We never get direct flights from Peoria!). Once I arrive Friday afternoon, I'll drive across the border to snag state #11 at the Centerpoint Half Marathon. It's a flat course, so it should be fairly easy on my legs if I can hold back the reins. The route has lots of turns, which always help slow me down. My goal is to come in around 2:05. I think a 9:30 pace would be a good workout for me right now, but not straining too hard.
|That's a lot of turning....|
Once I complete Alabama, I'll head back to Atlanta to meet up with Kim, LJ and Elizabeth for the Georgia Half Marathon (state #12). This Half is a bit more hilly... but I'm in love with the finisher's medal already. My goal is to finish and not die; possibly even keep up to Kim?
|Baby, that's not flat...|
My race outfits are complete for St. Patty's weekend. My fingers and toes are all green. And now I can finally start packing the suitcase. If you're running either race and see me, please come say hello! I know it will be crazy in Atlanta, but you never know who you'll bump into!

A lot of people ask me HOW I make these shirts... a tutorial coming soon!
