Time to Rock ‘n Roll

Time to Rock ‘n Roll

Jason and I signed up for the inaugural Seattle Rock ‘n Roll Marathon that’s happening this Saturday. We wanted to do the full but when we ran it by Teresa she gave us an “Are you serious” look and convinced us that tackling a marathon two weeks after doing a 70.3 isn’t the smartest idea we’ve had this year. We begrudgingly settled for the half, but after shredding my feet in Boise I’m thinking I made the right decision.

I’d like to finish in under 1:50, having done a 1:52 and change at the Vancouver Half Marathon nearly two months ago. However, I haven’t run much lately (I wouldn’t call my Boise lurch much of a training run since I was going pretty slow, and since then I’ve been in recovery mode and letting my feet heal) so I’m not sure how well I’ll do.

Jason’s itching to do a sub 1:40 and I think he’ll pull it off because he’s pretty stubborn and has been doing great with his training this season. Plus, even if he does pass out, at least we’re in our hometown so I can just drag him over to Harborview, get him pumped full of IV fluids and head home.

So…those are our Saturday morning plans. I’ll post another entry letting all five of you who read this blog how well we did. If you’re watching the race, be sure to cheer on the TN Multisport runners and give us plenty of encouragement. 🙂

  1. I think it would be more accurate to say that at least you’re in your home town so you can call a couple of friends to help you drag Jason to Harborview. I’ve seen pictures of you two standing side by side. You’re not going to drag that guy anywhere 😉

    Haha, I know. Maybe I can get him into a wheelbarrow.

    I think you have more than 5 followers on this blog! Everyone knows the mediocre athletes. I haven’t heard your results yet, should I be calling the hospitals?

    We finished and just showered. Now it’s time for FOOOOOOD. Jason PR’d and I did craptacular. The body did not feel good at all–I was 4 min slower than Vancouver and 6 minutes off my goal time. Oh well, guess that means I have more training to do. :-/
