I have officially signed up for my first 10k race. The Redondo Beach Superbowl Sunday 10k to be exact. It looks like a lot of fun and Garrett said he ran it years ago a few times. I am excited about it, but a little nervous at the same time. Just keep in mind, I am not trying to win any medals!
I have also joined the Santa Clarita Runners, which is a group that gets together throughout the week to run. Saturdays, they do a 10 mile run, Sundays they do some marathon training runs, and then they have some shorter runs throughout the week. This past Saturday I went 9 miles, thinking it was more like 10 or 11. It's been hard getting back into it. But it's nice now because I go out for a 3 to 4 mile run and it feels like I am just getting warmed up.
By the way, I never mentioned that I finally opened my present from Garrett on Christmas morning and it was just what I wanted..... an iPod shuffle. The surprise part of it was that Garrett had it engraved with "Run, Tasha, Run". I have downloaded several songs on it and even got an iTunes gift card so I can buy something other that Gar's selections!
Sure looks like I am getting all ready. The only thing that I hadn't really thought about is that the days when I will be doing most of my "real" training will be right when it is sooooo hot here. I guess I will be getting up real early to do anything then. It's still a ways off, but it's on my mind, a lot!
