Pittsburgh Marathon Relay Announcement!

31 Jan

I’ve done exactly one thing today:  obsess about the Pittsburgh Marathon Relay.

You’ve heard me lament year after year about my desire to run the Pittsburgh Marathon.  And yet, year after year my heart remains unsatisfied.  I had never considered the relay as an option because I just don’t know that many people who run.  But this morning I received a text message from a friend asking me if I wanted to get a relay team together.  Ummmm….YES!

So, in the most wonderful twist of fate ever, I will be running a 6.1 mile leg of the relay!  I am so incredibly happy that I get this opportunity and thankful for the motivation.  Lord knows I need it!  I will be running from RE3 to RE4, which you can view on the map below:


It’s taking everything in me right now not to close Changin’ Time, speed home screaming at the top of my lungs, change into my running clothes, and hit the road!  Meanwhile, I am also counting down the hours until we close on our new house!!!!!  This is the best day ever!!!

    You will love it! Congrats and have fun!
