Music Monday: Let’s Go!

A couple of days ago, I ran my second half marathon of the year and this Sunday, I’ll run my third for 2013 on St. Patricks’s Day.  How’s that for a half fanatic?  Two half marathons in one week!  Of course, it’s not as impressive as two marathons in a week, but we do what we can.

This weekend, I also have back to back races.  On Saturday, my girls and I will run the Spring Sprint together again.  I’ll run the 5K with Allana and the 1 Mile Fun Run with Emmalynn.  Over the past year, the girls have made such strides in their running ability and I can’t wait to see how they do!

The girls’ running coach bought everyone green running club shirts, so we’ll be all set in our green attire for a St. Patricks Day themed race.  Of course, we’ll wear our little green derby hats again.  I may even wear the tutu again this year.

On Sunday, I will run the Sarasota Half Marathon with Chrissy and several of the Suncoast Striders.  Technically this half marathon won’t count toward half fanatic status as I will be running with under a pseudo bib, which a friend offered to me when she unexpectedly dropped out of the race.  So Sunday, Run DMT will be “Marie G” to earn this awesome medal.  Personally, I think the dolphins should be jumping through shamrock green ocean waters.

As for the Sarasota Half Marathon course, I hear there’s a tough bridge in the first half.  Therefore, I’ve decided to approach this race with my usual run happy and snappy philosophy taking photos and just enjoying the course, although I will pick up the pace in the second half.  After all, Marie G is pretty speedy. 

For Music Mondays, I’m now teaming up with my good friend and fellow Marathon Mama, Chrissy.

From start to finish, Denise is Run DMT, a Tampa Bay marathon mom on the run trying to maintain an easy pace through it all between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 13, 9, 4). In 2007, I discovered a passion for running and in February 2015, I completed my tenth marathon, however, I continue to train for a variety of races and triathlons. In my spare time, I founded Tampa Bay Bloggers, a hyperlocal blogging network.

    First of all look at that cutie pie! She lost her two front teeth, huh? Awww How sweet! Well, ladies they’re going to call you the “Trio of Fun”, run, run, run! Fabulous! Thanks for sharing! Your songs are really up, but new to me. I think I like the second one better! ;)

    Love Matt & Kim- Let’s Go (and all other songs by them). How luck are you to have two awesome daughters that are interested and enjoy the same things you do? Two half-marathons in one week seems like a lot to me, but I’m sure you’re ready for it.

    I hopped over on the Monday Music Hop. I love how you and your girls get out there and run together. I like to run but have only put a half hearted attempt at it. Loving the tutu.
