Packing Up And Heading To Marine Corps Marathon!

I’m so excited!  This will actually be my FIRST time in Washington DC!!!!  Seeing the Lincoln Memorial is on my bucket list and I will get to cross it off as well as running the Marine Corps Marathon!


I’m having some mommy guilt since my family isn’t coming with me this time.  Ugghhhhh.  They normally ALWAYS come with me when I travel for a race, but not this time.  I am excited about having a little bit of quiet time in a hotel room by myself, which I could seriously use, but at the same time I worry if they will be ok without me (of course they will.)  Does anyone else feel this way when you rarely get to travel without your family?  I planned a fun weekend for them though filled with Halloween parties and pumpkins, American Girl Doll Store lunch, and a movie, so they will have a good time… I hope.  I watch other moms travel to races all the time without their families and sometimes I’m slightly envious that they don’t have to wrestle their little ones to bed and make sure food and clothes are prepared for their kids before they go run a marathon, so this is my shot!  But I still feel guilty 🙁

Marathons, monuments, and sleeping in a quiet hotel room by myself!  A new journey awaits me.  Fingers crossed I don’t get lost. (joking…kinda)

Who will I be seeing in DC?!?!

    Good luck in Washington! I read the WSJ article about half marathons and you were quoted! Did you see the article? It was in the October 21 issue.

    AHHHH!!! So excited for you! You will love DC and MCM. MCM was my first marathon last year and it was THE BEST experience ever. Take it all in! Can’t wait to run it again on Sunday! Good luck!
