a great kickoff ...

This weekend is going to rock. In a few hours, I will be heading to DC with several of my Run Like A Mother teammates for a kid-free, fun-filled running weekend. Then once we get there, I'll be meeting up with Katye, who will be staying with and racing with us. And if things work out, I will get to meet MissZippy after the race. I.CAN.NOT.WAIT.

I have been looking forward to this weekend since we got into the race (by lottery) in December. It's supposed to be beautiful. I'll be with my friends. Plus, it's a guaranteed PR. And like I mentioned like 20 times this week. I am going to run fast. I just know it.

And I know that this weekend is going to rock because it got an AWESOME kickoff yesterday. I woke up to find out that I won a pair of Keens in a contest on the blog for Run Like A Mother: The Book. You can click HERE to see the post, which features not only my opinion of the best running advice I give others, but also my sock collection.

Pretty cool, huh? I told you this weekend is going to rock.
