The Hubs and I will be traveling to Tulsa, Oklahoma and I'll be running the Route 66 Marathon.
I'd love to meet as many of my readers as possible, so please come out to see me if you can!
Here is the schedule for this weekend:
Friday, November 16th:
7:00pm come meet me, Aly, and Holly at Yokozuna's for some drinks and socializing.
You don't have to drink to come. You just have to promise not to make lampshades out of our skins.
Saturday, November 17th:
1:00pm I am speaking at the Route 66 Marathon Health & Sustainability Expo.
I will be sharing my story and taking questions from the audience.
I urge all of you to come out and listen. I promise not to picture you in your skivvies.
Okay, that's a lie. I don't promise that at all.
The Expo is free and open to the public, so come on out!
2:00pm I am in the panel at the Runner's Blogger Forum at the Expo. It is me and 3 other bloggers/runners. And I've looked all of them up. And they are all crazy awesome runners. And this is only my second half marathon. And I'm probably going to have to walk on Sunday due to knee pain.
I'm clearly out of my league here. But there will be a really cool Q&A where we'll answer any of your questions about our blogs.
Sunday, November 18th:
8:00am is the start time for the Marathon and Half Marathon.
I was really shooting at finishing that bad boy in under 2 hours and 20 minutes... but due to recent suckfest circumstances (read: my knee is craptastic) I may have to walk this race.
I was pretty bummed about it when I realized I may not be able to PR or even run the whole thing, but I can promise you this...
I am going to give it all I've got.
I am going to try to keep a positive attitude and do my best to run if I can, walk if I need, and crawl if I must.
If I end up walking, I end up walking. I am not going to run through excruciating pain and risk the chance of injuring myself even more.
I will cross that effin finish line with my head held high, even if I have to be carried across it in a damn stretcher.
That is a promise.
I have an appointment with the chiropractor tomorrow, so I'm hoping for some relief, or at least some answers!
I will also try to update you all live from the race via Facebook & Instagram (@mamalaughlin) so be sure to check in!
See y'all in Tulsa!
