Oops I Did It Again...

I went and signed up for another half marathon. I did this last time. I signed up for the Mardi Gras half before I even ran my first half (the Jazz half.) When I started training for the Jazz half, I figured this would be a one and done kinda thing. But during my first 8mi run, I knew I hooked.

My sister and personal running guru (Nanny Goat) our friend (Barb) and I are running this half together.

Me, Barb, & Nanny Goat

This will be the first time I travel to a race.  It's exciting. And it makes me nervous. I'm such a creature of habit. I wake up super early to calm my nerves and eat the same thing for breakfast before a run. But I need to learn to be more flexible in life. So I'm jumping outside of my comfort zone. I'm running a race with 20k people, in a city I don't know. Wahoo! Look at me growing!
