The Hubs put one stipulation on this endeavor: be smart. I hurt my knee pretty good after my last half and ever since, I've had knee pain when I run. He knows me better than anyone and knew that I'd want to jump in head first and pick up a long distance. His only request was that I take it slow. I could do whatever races I want as long as I'm not going for 13.1 again until the fall.
So for the first time ever, I'm going to listen to him. Call the press. This is a first. Jess is actually listening to the Hubs. Has hell frozen over?
But he has a point. I need to really do this right. I want this to become a lifestyle, not just something I'm doing once. I need to make sure I'm doing everything I need to in order to be safe and injury free.
So here's my plan so far:
Feb 9th: Rock N Roll St Pete Mini Marathon (3.1 miles)
April 14th: Iron Girl 5K
May 4th: Expedition Everest (This one's not a definite but I want to do it and I want the Hubs to do it with me)
I'm hoping RunDisney is having the Tower of Terror 10 miler again this year. I think that would be a great race to do and if it's in September again, it would be a great time to be doing a 10 mile race.
November 24th: Women's Half Marathon I've ran the 5K in this series and had a great time. I've always wanted to do this half so I think it's a good choice and great timing for me. It will make the Hubs happy too. Plus it will give me another half under my belt so I can go into the Princess feeling pretty good. I think it's only fitting to head back to Disney for this race so I can completely blow my previous 2 finishes out of the water!
So here's to 2013 and adding more Bling to my life!!!!!
