Fast Friday Update

I’ve been neglecting my little piece of the internet this week, which is very uncharacteristic. I just haven’t had much to write about.

So here are a few things that have been going on this week.

I bought a Garmin Forerunner 410

Remember how the other week I was inquiring about race watches? Well, the very next day there was a Groupon deal for $100 off the Garmin Forerunner 410. I took it as a sign and bought it on impulse. It should be here within the next few days; I am ridiculously excited to try out my new toy.

I signed up for another half marathon

I’m running the Rock ‘n Roll in VA Beach for the third time this September. This race is fun, although it can get a little crowded on the course. The only reason I’m really signing up is because Train is the headliner this year for the concert. I ❤ their music!

RunDisney unveiled the new marathon course for the 20th Anniversary Disney World Marathon

Words cannot express how excited I am about this course. I loved running the marathon in 2011, although, admittedly the course got slightly boring because you spend a lot of time running between the parks on back roads. Disney does a great job filling the lulls with entertainment, but it seems like this new course has even more attraction time! I did slightly groan at the idea of running around a race track (they are on a slight sideways incline which can be painful on your legs), I am dying to know what the surprise at mile 20 is! I really want to try to do the Goofy Challenge this year (ie. run the half on Saturday and the full on Sunday). No, I’m not a crazy runner, not at all.

I booked a BEACH trip!!

Finally taking my first vacation days of the year…I can’t believe it took me until June! I’m heading down to (hopefully) sunny South Carolina in a few weeks. I’m so ready for the beach, beer, mini golf, food, and relaxation time.  Myrtle Beach, here I come!

My heel is giving me problems

This isn’t as positive as everything else on the list, but my heel has been acting up this week. Every time I run, I have sharp pains in my heel and sometimes they last for an entire day after. I’ve taken it easy with the running this week, but it still hasn’t gone away. My brother (in PT school, so I trust him) says it looks like early signs of plantar fasciitis. I sure hope not because that will put a serious damper on #1-3 on this list!

Happy Friday! Any big weekend plans?
