Current Countdowns

I had originally planned to share my Dulles Day 10k on the Runway recap with all of you today.  However, I don’t believe all of the race photos from that day have been uploaded to Potomac River Running’s website yet (at least I haven’t received the usual e-mail that they have), and since I’m anticipating some awesome pictures from the race I want to wait until I have access to all of them.  As I’ve shared before, one of the many benefits of Potomac River Running races are the free race photos.  Based on the ones that I have seen so far, it’ll be worth the wait for this race recap!

You'll have to wait just a little bit longer to hear all about how I earned this adorable medal!

There are several fun events that I’m currently counting down to, including:

  • Clarendon Day 10k in four days – Although I haven’t run since the Dulles Day 10k on Saturday, I’m hoping that I’ll be well enough by this coming weekend to run another 10k.  After being sick for a week, I finally went to the doctor yesterday, and I’m hopeful that stronger medicine, including antibiotics, will finally be what I need to shake off what I’ve been battling.
  • Ravens tailgate and paella in five days – You may recall from last football season that Preston and I attended a tailgate with family friends, at which a huge serving of paella was made.  We are very much looking forward to catching up with friends and enjoying paella this weekend!

  • Army Ten Miler in 19 days – Its hard to believe that in less than three short weeks I’ll be running my big fall race!  I’m hopeful that this small training setback that I’ve faced for the past week won’t have a huge impact on running a strong race that day.
  • Seeing my parents in 64 days – Preston and I will be celebrating Thanksgiving in Illinois with my family this year.  Now that its officially fall, I cannot wait for the big fall holiday to be here!
  • Disney World in 87 days! – That’s right folks, we’re headed to Disney World, and it isn’t for any races!  We’ll be spending the days leading up to Christmas at Disney with my in-laws before we celebrate Christmas up in New Jersey with them.  Our last two trips to Disney World have been for Marathon Weekend, and it’ll be nice to be able to enjoy the parks without 2:30 a.m. wake up calls.

    So many fun things going on! The paella tailgate sounds like such a fun tradition. I’m counting down to my first Run Disney race in 10 days! And then the Richmond half marathon about a month after that.

  3. Sounds like you have some exciting plans coming up. That medal is so cool! I am looking forward to completing MCM for my next big race.

    I wish more races would offer free race photos. that’s such a nice perk.
    I am counting down the weeks until I’ll be cleared to start running again!!! I’m just itching to get out there again. And the cooler weather is making it really hard.

  6. Wow, you’ve got a lot to look forward to! I am only able to look ahead one day at a time these days 🙂 I’m doing the Clarendon double this weekend, Color Run on Sunday with my son, Army 10 Miler, and then my family arrives for MCM!
