Who's Ready to be a Nookachamp?

Sounds funny right. Let me explain. So we are hatching a plan for a marathon in April........ well what about joining me(Ang) for a half in January?? January 12th to be exact.

I have talked a little bit in my comments about not being able to get going again after I ran my half marathon in Sept. So I knew I just needed to find another race to get the running fire lit again. This race is just what I needed. I had a great training week last week. Anyway.

I know some of you live in Portland and thought that you just might be interested. The race starts at Skagit Valley Community College in Mt. Vernon, WA. The race is called the 29th annual Nookachamps Winter Runs. There is actually a 5k, 10k, or a half marathon. I am doing it for sure. I would love company. :) I have actually committed a sister in law and a friend to run it. They are both first timers. I'm really excited. So come join me in becoming an official Nookachamp! (Whatever that means!) You won't be disappointed! Won't it be so much fun if we could meet up before SLC! Click on me to go the Nookachamp web site.

I am in! My aunt actually lives in Skagit Valley and I almost ran this half 2 years ago. I need something to get me going also.

Thanks for the invite. :-) Look forward to meeting you. I am sure I can get Suzie P to go with me.

Dang...I wish I was closer.

Is there anyone close to me in Nor-Cal? That's it. I need to recruit...

This sounds like fun! Living here in TX, I'm always dreaming of cooler weather running.

Good luck with your training! Signing up for an inbetween race can be a great spark to keep your feet moving towards yur bigger goal.

I'm intrigued. What's the closest airport to this race? JP, I'm in Fresno. If you find a good Saturday race, I'd consider it.

I'm in the Sacramento Area...so 2 hours away from Santa Rosa (m&m's friend) and (I think) 3 or so from you polliwog. Dang!

But I'll keep a look out for a Saturday run!! :)

M&M,
Yeah!!! I'm sooooooooooo excited you're in!

Polliwog,
The closest airport is the SeaTac airport. I'm so pumped you're considering it!

I have to admit I'm thrilled. I posted this post thinking no one would be able to come. I'm glad I put it out there.

Suzie P. Has M&M convinced you to come with her yet???

This is going to be great!

M&M knows I don't KNOW how to say "No" to her.

Ya know? :)
