Back in April I heard about the DIVAS Half Marathon & 5K Series coming to Virginia and I was pumped!  I immediately sent out a note to the Cruiser chicks to see who wanted to run the race with me.  I even envisioned us wearing matching tutus!

The very next night, Julie called to tell me that there was going to be a Hokie Half Marathon in Blacksburg and I was so excited that I almost peed my running shorts!  I think my enthusiasm showed in the following day’s post, BEST. NEWS. EVER = Hokie Half Marathon.  Yeah, I get pretty excited about some things!  And then it happened…  I realized that it was the same weekend as the DIVAS Half…  I am a Hokie first, and a DIVA second, so the decision was easy and I signed up for the Hokie Half!

This summer the rug was pulled completely out from under me when it was announced that there would be a Dulles Day 5K on the Runway as part of the Dulles International Airport plane pull.  Naturally it’s the same weekend as the other two races, and I won’t be able to do it.  I love planes and all things airport related, so I would be like a little kid in a candy store if I could run in this race!  My friend, Jessica, is going to run the race (I am green with envy), and promised to write a guest post for me next week.

Good luck to my friends Linda and Emma when you run in the DIVAS Half! Jessica, have a blast at the Dulles Day 5K; and Meagan, Barry, and Julie, I’m looking forward to seeing you at the Hokie Half.  Happy racing everyone!
