The last in the series, for me anyway...

...this is where you'll find me this coming weekend. My final Half Marathon for 2008! Wooo Hooo!!!

My Half Iron friend Anne and I will be driving to T.O. on Friday. I'm really looking forward to this weekend, as I get to "go home", visit with my dad, catch up with old friends and meet some new friends. Yes, I'm meeting up with more bloggers!!!

Vickie along with her friend Jan, Marci, Marlene and Tiger, maybe with some luck Melanie!

Saturday afternoon, 4pm at the Expo, Running Room Booth, be there or be square! That will be the place to be. I would imagine the noise level will increase drastically when we all get together, LOL....

There really is no plan for the race, however, I would like to go at a stronger pace than last weekend. Yes, I am taking my camera, so it may not be a PB (again). My Wooo Hooo's are all telling me to "see what's in the tank", but we will see what's shake'n when I get up Sunday morning.

The weatherman is doing the big flip flop on the race day conditions. One weather station says cloudy and rain, the other says sunny with clouds....in reality we get what we get...I am not a fair weather runner, so I really don't care.

I'll be incommunicado until I return on Monday, yes believe it or not I'm taking an extra long weekend much to the chagrin of the guys in the office. Suck it up boys, if you can go and play golf on a Tuesday and leave me to "mind to store" while you're out on the links, then booo hoooo to you, I won't be here on Friday nor Monday!!

Best wishes to everyone racing, running, cycling and tri-ing this weekend.




A very special Shout Out to Marlene and Emily...it will be their first Full Marathon EVER!! You go girls, make some memories....we will be there to cheer Marlene and Tiger across the finish line!!!

See you on Saturday!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily
