Beat the Bridge 8K



My Crossfit girlfriends lured me into running at 8k tomorrow, and I am REALLY excited/nervous.  Let's not let it go unmentioned that I have not been training for this considering I signed up four days ago, but I am sure I will survive right?!?


Many options to chose from:  
8k Race, 4-mile Family Walk, or 1-mile Fun Run.
Sounds fun to me!



It goes to a great cause to benefit Juvenile Diabetes Research, and the goal is to beat the University Bridge at the 2 mile mark before it is raised.  I think that makes it exciting, so you don't get stuck :)

All you runners out there .... what's your favorite upbeat song to run to?  I am getting my iPod ready with some jams!  

Let's hope these sore chubby legs run fast!

As someone who has done several 5K, 10K and half marathons I mix up my ipod with 80s stuff, 90s stuff and stuff like gaga, britney, kings of leon, muse, and I actually a few TV shows and movies on my i pod touch that ill listen to. I did one half marathon listening to Juno...

Kelsey Girl!
Speaking of ipods!
I haven't tried Greg's ipod very often...
but when I did...
I was LOVING it!
Then I started to jog...
and the earplugs kept falling out!
Oh I was so frustrated!
Does that ever happen to you?
Any suggestions?
xoxoxo

Cassie said...
