The Weekend of July 10, 2015 in Team Z

Woot Woot?  One day when I was chillin’ in Kentucky Fried Chicken.  This dude walks in looking strange and kinda funny, went up to the front with a menu and his money. He didn’t walk straight…kindof side to side. He asked the ol lady… “yo yo, is this Kentucky Fried?”.  The lady said yes smiled, he smiled back.  Gave a quarter and his order….small fries BIG MAC! You be illin

I don’t know what just got into me…..but I love how funny I am.  🙂

Race Report: The Anthem Shamrock Half Marathon

Following is a guest post by Team Zer, Eileen S., who recently completed her first half marathon in Virginia Beach, the Anthem Shamrock Half Marathon.  Way to go, Eileen!  Let this be the first of many happy half marathons!

Kevin and I signed up for the Shamrock Half marathon as our very first half marathon.  We did our best to follow the training plan over the winter, but a number of factors, including the weather, kept us from completing a number of the long runs.  Still, we headed off to Virginia Beach hoping that the training that we were able to do prepared us enough to complete the race.  We spent Saturday cheering on the runners in the 8k race, and then enjoyed the pre-race dinner, met dozens of other Zers, and listened to Alexis’ pep talk.  We were ready.

We set three goals for the race:

  1. Start;
  2. Finish;
  3. Don’t get injured.

Since it was our first half, as long as we finished, we were guaranteed a PR, so neither of us was concerned about time.

We anticipated windy and cold conditions on race morning and were pleasantly surprised when we woke up to perfect running weather – 40s with very little wind.  Score!  We ambled the few blocks from our hotel to the start line, found our corral, and lined up with all the other runners.

LAST MINUTE QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS WEEKEND. So, baby #2 is due to arrive on Monday. But… I’ve given myself a few weekends off in a row just in case she comes early. Including this one. I don’t mind last minute e-mails or calls – I get them every weekend – but I just wanted everyone to know that if I’m unresponsive you may want to reach out to the person in charge of that particular workout. I will not have my cell with me in the delivery room. J And of course reading through this NOW and asking questions ahead of time is helpful.
