I have good news and bad new for you today. Which one to you want first? The bad news? Okay.
Bad News: I am NOT becoming the fifth member of The Starland Vocal Band. (Super sad face)
GOOD NEWS: I was selected for Nuun’s 2012 Hood to Coast Team!!! HEYO!!
The big announcement came at 2PM PST yesterday and as soon as I clicked on their site and saw my name…I freaked!! I am SO amped, y’all! I made it!
So much good stuff is going to come out of this experience, I just know it! I have so many thoughts and questions and ideas…I don’t even know where to start! So many of the other running bloggers that I follow and talk it up with on Twitter will be there. I simply cannot wait to put faces with names…and, as always, I love the opportunity to turn online friends into in-real-life friends! Plus, I have never traveled to the Pacific Northwest, so I am super jazzed to see (and run in!) a different part of the country!
In the meantime, if you want to check out my teammates and see what they are up to, you can check out their blogs at the link above or you can subscribe to the list on Twitter that Dorothy made!
START: Friday, August 24, 2012 (Mt. Hood, Oregon)
FINISH: Saturday, August 25, 2012 (Seaside, Oregon)
These dates work out perfectly for me. By then, I will have “graduated” my TurboFire program and I will be feeling strong! YES! Over the next couple of weeks, I will be getting more details about the event and I will be sure to share them all with you!
Have you ever run an ultramarathon relay before? Have you ever run Hood to Coast before? Got any advice for me about the race or about the Pacific Northwest, in general?
