Another Race Weekend Approaches

Sunday I will run the Omaha Half Marathon.

I was originally doing this race as a part of a training run for the Nike Women's Full Marathon October 16th. I have since dropped down to the half marathon for Nike after I ran into a hole injuring my right foot.
But....Since I already paid for the Omaha race....I'm sticking with it! Thankfully I am feeling healed enough to pull it off. 

But honestly....pull it off is about all I am going to be able to do. 

After much thought....I have decided to take it easy during this race. I will run the race....not race this race. This is a very hard pill to swallow, but I think it is the best choice.







Buford Foundation:


Though it is a hard pill...this race looks like fun! It will be nice to take it easy and enjoy all the fun activities this race promises to provide!
