Independence Run

desperately trying to get back into the training groove, I ventured out with Iron Man – Vinny Mancini.  My allergies were killing me but we managed to get in 6 (tough) miles, a sprint up to the Constitution Center, and a couple great shots of my favorite city!  Hopefully after a couple more runs, I will be able to shake the post marathon blahs!

35th Annual Broad Street Run!!

“Congratulations and welcome to TEAM DUNKIN’!!   You have been selected as 1 of 10 extraordinary individuals to join Team Dunkin’ for the 32nd Annual Blue Cross Broad Street Run on Sunday, May 1, 2011!  We received some great submissions, but based on your essay, your community involvement and all that you have done for the Greater Philadelphia area, YOU were chosen!”

You can imagine how excited I was to find this message in my inbox!  I was totally bummed when I hadn’t signed up for the race and it sold out in just a few short days.  All my friends were doing it and I felt totally left out!  On a whim I signed up for this Facebook contest and with little to no hope, I composed my essay.  I had just assumed I’d be crashing the race with my Lululemon Run Club or buying a bib off of Craigslist for 4X the price.

Well, last night I received my confirmation email from the 35th Annual Broad Street Run!!  I am officially registered, yada, yada…  And even better news…I come to find out from a Facebook friend that this year they are giving “hardware” to the finishers! (Medals)  I’m so excited!  This past week (post Paris Marathon), I’ve taken off from running, nursing a small injury…but I’m back in action now, so stay tuned for some fun BSR training photos!
