I love getting emails that look like this:
Today was a good day. I have had marked on my calendar for MONTHS the date the Marine Corps Marathon registration for the 2011 race opened up! Last year the race sold out in 6 days I believe, so this year I wanted to be one of the first to register to make sure I got in.
The registration was supposed to open at noon, but I logged on a little early today (11:45 am) and was able to register quickly and easily. Love it when that happens!
The Marine Corps. Marathon has been on my radar for a while now. It is even on my Marathon List! It is supposed to be an amazing race and it’s close to where my parents live so I will be sure to have a good support system there, which is SO important when running 26.2 miles!
I am excited to start training for my 3rd Marathon (after the wedding and once we get back from the honeymoon!) and pumped to get my race on down in DC on Oct, 30th! Any of my blog friends/readers running Marine Corps?
In other news – tonight we are watching Waiting for Superman. Here is the synopsis of the movie:
“Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) weaves together the stories of students, families, educators and reformers to shed light on the failing public school system and its consequences on the future of the United States. In this Sundance Audience Award winner for Best Documentary, Guggenheim deftly examines the options to improve public education and provide America’s teachers and students with the help they need”
Supposed to be an amazing movie! Anyone seen it or have any thoughts on the issues the movie touches upon?
