Her party was really nice and she loved her cake. It was great to see my little niece and nephew, even if they are not so little any more!
I headed back to work on Monday, realizing that I had no race or walk to plan for, and my weekends were free until May, when we were doing a weekend trip to WDW for the Flower & Garden Festival. I was actually kind of bummed there were no walks or races!!
After I signed up for the MoD race, I had been thinking that it was a good way to get a few walks and races under my belt before the Princess, but hadn't *really* been looking or planning for any! So yesterday afternoon, I dug around active.com and found a few for April, May and July. I ended up signing up for Susie's Run! a 5k Run, Walk or Stroll on April 28 at Westwood Middle School.

When you register, you also get a tee shirt and a patch! I love swag!
|I hope the shirt I get looks like a cartoon!|
|This is the patch - where shall I put it?|
There are some great sponsors for this event, including Publix, Fit2Run, Gainesville Running & Walking, RoadID and D'Lites Emporium!
I'm hoping that I can do this in ONE HOUR or less and not kill myself. It would be great to do it in 45 MINUTES, but I don't think I'm there yet. If I can keep a 19-minute mile pace, I can finish in less than one hour. If I can keep a 141/2-minute pace, I can finish in 45 minutes. As of today, I can NOT keep a 14 minute pace.
I've got a little over 3 weeks to train for this (24 days, actually), and while I don't know if I'll meet that 45 minute goal, I know I'll finish, and that is what counts right now!
