hardware (w)hore

this running thing has definitely blossomed into a full-fledged addiction.  behold, my 2012:


that's crazy, right?  and the year is already off to a great start with that new year's race the teen and i did.  plus, my calendar is quickly filling up with more.  i have a local 5K tomorrow, my second go-round at the tinkerbell half the following weekend, and then there's a run every sunday in the month of february.

one of those is the princess half marathon at disney world in florida.  i'm super duper excited about it, because while i despise the training for these things (long runs suck butt), i get to earn a fabulous "coast to coast" medal for doing a half at disneyland and disney world in the same calendar year.  clearly, i am a medal whore.

i do have one other half scheduled for this year - the hollywood half - but after that, i am done with those things.  i'm serious.  i'm so over them, as rewarding as it is to cross the finish line.  i'll stick to shorter distances, like 5K-10K.  and i'm finding that there are other fun things to do too - like, i'm registered with a group of friends for shape magazine's "diva dash."  it's a 5K obstacle course that's nowhere near as gnarly as the spartan race or other similar mud runs, and i'm really looking forward to it.  and then there's the scavenger hunt-like 5K the teen and i are doing together in pasadena.  oh!  and another fun looking water-themed 5K this july.

i'm thinking 2013 may make 2012 look like an amateur.  ha!
