Another Race Another Place

Before I start, I've been slacking on my Christmas/new years updates but I PROMISE all the photos and such will be up by the end of the week. Ok, now back to your irregularly scheduled blog...

Last week I signed up for my first half marathon of the year! Normally I do the PF Changs Rock 'n Roll 1/2 here in Phoenix which is Sunday, but I'm going to a wedding the night before so running 13.1 miles the morning after is definitely out. After thinking long and hard (well not too long, and actually not too hard) I've decided on the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon! It's May 17th in Fredericksburg, VA, which is only 30 minutes south of Quantico, where Chris is currently training. The best part? My parents are coming and my mom is running with me. Chris is going to spend the weekend with us and then my parents and I are going to D.C. for the week to tour the city. I start my race training on the 26th of this month and I'm actually really excited to start running hard again.

I'm now looking for any tips on DC from anyone who's been before. Our flights and hotels are already booked, so we just need things to fill our days. Any tips of any kind are greatly appreciated!

I, too, am really looking forward to our training and our trip. Running is always better with a goal. Of course I'm looking forward to seeing Chris, too. It seems to odd to not have him here with our family:-(
Love, mom
