My sister and I also signed up for the Innaugural Girls on the Run 5k in Waunakee on November 14. I will be starting the race with my sixteen-year-old sister, Kelsey, as she competes in her very first 5K. I'm so excited to be going a race that promotes getting young women and girls outdoors and encourages them to build confidence through the sport of running. I only wish I had discovered such a passion early on.
Jason and I also signed up for the Tyranena Beer run on November 7. I am excited to be doing another half marathon with him this year! He's sure to smoke me this time!! Much of my mom's relation lives in Lake Mills, so I'm hoping to see several familiar faces along the course. Jason is very excited about the post-race spread of and race-side "beer tent", after the race. This will be my fifth half marathon of 2009 and most likely my final race of the calendar year.
