Let's see... where did we leave off?
Training was going well up until last week. I just wasn't feelin' it. I had a GREAT 10 miler last Saturday and a pretty decent tempo run last Monday... but then the rest of the week just sort of got away from me. I still did my 2 cycle classes and a bootcamp... but no additional running.
I coordinated a wedding and reception for some friends on Saturday - which was beautiful, by the way...
Donny and I leave for Disney World on Saturday morning and then the Laguna Hills Half is on Monday so my timing is actually really good since I'll be tapering on vacation.
I decided to sign up for the City Impact Ventura Beach Half Marathon on June 15th. (I'd mentioned before that I wanted to do the Run Montecito in Santa Barbara in July - but my family will be on vacay in San Clemente that weekend and I decided to be with them - so this is replacing that.)
It's hosted by City Impact
which is an outreach for at-risk children, youth and families in
Ventura County. I've read a couple good reviews about the race and it's
cheap so that makes me happy... but I also get a little nervous when
races don't have super official websites... has anyone done it before
that can give me any more info on it?
I'll be wedding-ing it up both the night before and the day after but the wedding the night before is in Santa Clarita which is where I went to school (The Master's College - woot woot!) and is almost half way to Ventura, so I might see if we can stay out there with someone...
I think I'll go into this one as a little more low-key, fun, supporting kids, etc. type of goals - we'll see though - I'm way too competitive with myself...
