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.

How fun, you got your daughters in on the whole running thing with you! That’s great! Your tunes had me boogie! Thanks for joining us on the virtual dance floor on Monday’s Music Moves Me!
You continue to amaze and inspire me with your maniac ways! Sarasota is so beautiful, and I wish I was running this one with you. The bling is awesome!! I’ll be cheering you on virtually while I am up running on the Citrus Trail with my 7 year old 🙂
I wish my PF feet could handle a trail run! Good luck to you this week, virtual partner!
Thank you St. Patrick’s Day outfit go get that Sarasota bling!
I’m pretty excited about the Sarasota Half Marathon. I WANT THAT MEDAL! 🙂
I’m so glad you’re going to wear the derby again! You and your girls are way too cute for words. 😉 Love that they’re excited about running, too! And I love your tune choice! 😉
Born This Way which means I Have Friends In Low Places, but I find solace In My Daughter’s Eyes while she does the Minecraft Style to my Momisms with a Parent Rap
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.
You go, go, GO!
You and your daughters are cute. I love those little green derby. I need to find mine!
Have a great week.
Two halfs in a week is an awesome feat! Good luck!
Congrats on the completion of the Half-Marathon. And I love your song choices. Both upbeat and definitely running music. Happy Music Monday x
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.
I LOVE Ne-yo. This song makes me want to dance all over the place! Great Choice! Best of luck this weekend- seriously- it is my goal to run a 13.1 this year – I’m going to get to it! Ok Ok so by Next January- that’s more probable 🙂 I love this! 🙂 I am excited for you and can’t wait to see the photos!
It’s awesome that you get to have fun with your girls in something that you love.
Keep living live girl!
