{ Busy Weekend }

The day has almost arrived for the innagural Seattle Rock N Roll Half and Full Marathon. Tomorrow morning at 7am, while most of you are still sleeping, I will be just starting out on a 13 mile run through Tukwila, Rainier and ending at Qwest Field - with the hopes of finishing just around 9am. The last half marathon I ran last summer, I ended up finishing around 2 hours 18 mins and came in just minutes behind the guy that won the FULL marathon - definitely a crazy way to end a race. I'm looking forward to tomorrow and I'm thinking that from here on out, I'll plan on running at least one half marathon every summer.

After the run, I'll be heading home to finish packing up our place in Bellevue because we are moving! A great opportunity has come up for us to move in to a completely remodeled home on the east hill of Kent - yes, the south end...I think I've mentioned this before, but I didn't even know where Kent was until I started dating Steve. Times have sure changed as I now have a Kent address. Like most cities in this area, there are the nice parts and the not so nice part, where we're moving is in a great location on a half of an acre. My commute to work will go from 6 miles each way to 20 miles each way, but I'll take this sacrifice for a beautiful new home with a huge kitchen that Steve and I can make all our own. I'll post photos next week.

Have a great weekend and best of luck to all of you that will be running tomorrow - please say hi if you see me.

Good luck tomorrow! I will be sending good thoughts your way. BTW I love how you are starting the day running a half marathon and then moving after like its no biggie :)

Thinking of you as you are running. Congrats on your new house. I want to see pictures.

Yeah! Hope the race went well. Living in a HOUSE with more space is amazing. I would for sure sacrifice and extra 15 minutes of commute time to do live there too.I really don't know how you can move and run today, my legs felt like they were going to fall off after the 1/2 in January. Maybe I'll do the next one with you.

Way to rock the run love! I am so proud of you! Can't wait to see what the house looks like when you are all moved in! XO
