As you know from our post yesterday we have got Kacie’s Run AND Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas on tap for this weekend! This is almost exactly what we did this weekend last year – we say almost because last year we paired up with our friends Joe & Bitner to do Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas as a relay!
Saturday morning we will head out to Standridge Stadium in Carrollton to run this 5K benefiting Carrollton Farmers Branch ISD Special Olympics.
We have been pretty fortunate this week in Dallas with some rain on a couple of days that have left us with some nice cool temperatures! We are hoping we’ll be in the 50’s the whole time we are out there for this 5K.
Goals: Teal will run this 5K as a race. It is a nice flat course so maybe she’ll bring home a PR. Her current 5K PR sits at 23:58. Beth will be treating this 5K as more of a shakeout run so don’t expect any new PR from her, put in 3.1 at a nice easy pace and be ready for what the next day has to hold!
And Sunday holds our longer day with Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas! We’ve been watching the weather all week to see what it would do for Sunday morning and not to mention it seems like a lot of Rock ‘n’ Roll races have had some HOT weather lately! Anyone else notice that?
As of now we are looking at a low of 62 and a high of 84. Here’s to hoping it stays in the 60’s for as long as possible! Something else we are hoping for on Sunday is another Troy Aikman sighting! 🙂 Last year Teal saw him as she was running her leg of the relay!
Goals: Well, Beth made it one of her March goals to run a sub 2 hour half marathon at this race so that is the goal! Ultimately she’d like to see a bright shiny new half PR come out of this race! Kind of scary admitting it because there could be a huge chance it doesn’t happen, but she’s gonna try gosh darn it! For Teal, she’s just wanting to complete the race! If you remember from her March goals that she was taking pretty much two weeks off from any type of working out that wasn’t yoga or weights with her trainer, Will.
We are excited for this weekend! There are lots of people we know who will be out running Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas and to all of you good luck! We would like to give a special good luck to Cynthia MacDonald! Girl, you are going to rock your first half marathon! Soak up every second of it because you’ll never get another first half marathon! You’ve trained hard and will do GREAT!
If you are going out to Rock n Roll to spectate you will hopefully be able to spot Beth easily in her yellow Nike shorts, gray top and yellow headband. Teal is trying to figure out what outfit combo will result in the least amount of chaffing (yes, she wears BodyGlide sometimes it still happens!) possible so maybe you can just look for the tall girl running down the streets of Dallas! 😉
Oh and one last thing – we’ll be hitting up the expo tomorrow afternoon! When are YOU going? Maybe we could meet up!
