so, in looking at the Countdown and realizing we’re only 84 days away i am getting those little butterflies in my stomach. it’s so exciting! i ran the Nashville half in ’08 and LOVED it! it is truly a great race. tons of spectators and lots of scenery. i believe the picture is of me around mile 8. i love this picture for 2 reasons- 1) i’m truly having fun even though i’m running all by myself (aside from the other 55,000 people on the course!) and 2) it’s the only picture i’ve ever owned where my legs actually look kind of long! anyway, we’re going to have a blast and i’m excited to have all of you on board for the training!
