Even though I hadn’t gotten an email notification, last week I instinctively decided to look on the Road Runners Club of America site to see if any coaching certification courses were coming my way.  I’ve been trying for what seems like forever to get in a class, but every time I heard about one, it was full by the time I tried to register.  I even signed up to receive an email when new classes opened up, but even with that, I’d see the dreaded “FULL” when I’d click on a class in my area.  Last week when I randomly went to their site and saw a list of available classes, I immediately signed up and got in!  About an hour later I got an email notification that new classes had been released, and just for fun I clicked on the location of my class.  It was already full.  I’m feeling very lucky!


On Saturday morning, Bill and I met Beth, Amit, and Janet for six miles on the W&OD Trail.  Beth needed to do a longer training run so by the time we got to the trail, she had already run six miles with our MRTT friends.  Since we were running the Loudoun Half on Sunday, Bill and I decided that six miles would be plenty for us.  My goal for the half was to have fun.  Had I known that once I got started I would end up racing it, I would have given my legs the day off!


Beth, Amit, and Janet trying to look shorter for me!

Beth and I decided that since we were wearing the same shoes, a twinzie-selfie was in order.  You can always tell my legs by the melanoma scar on my right lower shin.  Since May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, I have a few special related posts to share with you.


The horse trail is getting gorgeous, and I think that I’m going to start spending more time on it this summer!
