I’ve got some race news involving both these things that I’m just giddy about.
A little freaked out about? Yes. A little nervous about? Yes. Can not wait to race and tell you all about it? Yes.
First of all, I must tell you my mouth is still on fire.
Roasted kale salad, mushrooms, fresh basil, tomatoes, you name it were roasted last night and consumed with a little marinara, Scotty B’s Ghostly Garlic, Cholula, nutritional yeast, balsamic vinegar and crushed red pepper. That’s not all I ate, but that is definitely the reason my mouth is still on fire this morning.
Speaking of, don’t forget to enter the Scotty B’s giveaway. Your mouth can be on fire too. He he.
the next couple of months are going to be race crazy. It’s time to buckle up!
I have the Hot Chocolate 15K San Diego this Sunday. I’m just running to run and not care about my time. Pretty much I’m just running for the chocolate at the end.
Then in a couple weeks we’re headed to my old college stomping grounds for the San Luis Obispo Marathon.
Yep, the boys and I are making a trip. It should be a fun one. I love San Luis Obispo. Love it. I’ve been wanting to do this race for awhile for so many reasons.
San Luis Obispo is awesome- small town feeling mixed with extremely nice people and beautiful country.
I’m an SLO alumni (so is STUFT Daddy).
I have some other good friends from college who live there too.
The race ends at Madonna Inn.
And, well, it just seems like a really great race.
So, we’re going. If you’re close to the area, I think you should too. Check out this cool video about the race. There’s even a little shot of my Halo friends in there.
They also have a half marathon and a 5K.
The week after SLO we’re headed to Boston.
I still can’t even wrap my head around this one. Holy smokes. I really need to start planning the trip and scoping out some good places for us to eat. He he.
this is some BIG news………
Ahhhhh!!! I know, right?
I’ve heard so many amazing things about this race. It’s on my “fitness bucket list” and I can’t believe it’s happening so soon!
It was even voted “Best Destination Marathon” in 2012 by readers of Competitor magazine! It looks so beautiful. There’s a reason why this race sells out fast every single year.
And, it’s not just that, I get to join in on the amazing Runner’s World Challenge fun AND the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge. Both of these programs are just awesome and I can’t wait to be a part of the experience.
“Welcome runners to the 4th Annual Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge, an event that truly tests the limits of human endurance. I’m proud to be returning as the Official Host of B2B and I wish you the very best in your training and preparation for this epic undertaking.”

Oh, and hey, what do you know, Dean Karnazes will be there too. I guess I’m following my friend everywhere (SLO, Boston and Big Sur). He better watch out for some crazy stalker mama. Just kidding. Seriously though, my goal is for him to at least know my name after our third marathon together. Ha ha.
(yes, there’s more)
Um, never ran a relay before. Nothing like running your first one with a group from Runner’s World. No big deal, right? I hope I can hang and try to be cool all the way from Calistoga to Santa Cruz. Eeeek.
just kidding. That’s it for now.
Man oh man.
So, right now we’re taking full advantage of a low key weekend around here.
Lots of hugs.
Lots of love.
It should be fabulous!
Have you run any of these races?
What races are on your “bucket list” if any?
