I've registered for the Route 66 Half Marathon, so there is no turning back at this point! Training for this iconic event officially starts with my participation in Thursday's night First Mile event.
They offer various distances so whether it is truly your first mile, or you'd like to go a little further (3 mile or 5 mile options are available), this is a great way to join other like minded crazy runners and make your training official!
Fleet Feet Sports Tulsa always makes great events, and this one will be no different. Even though it is free, they pull out all the stops, from beer & beverages, to slip 'n slides and games for the little ones. They will have last years Route 66 Marathon merchandise available as well, and they always debut the Route 66 Medals - ALL of them!.
I spent the weekend at a cousin's house (with a ton of other cousins) and put a team together. One of the members lives in Tahlequah and so we won't be training side by side but virtually. I'm putting together our training runs based on her schedule - she's a Maternity nurse so sometimes her schedule is pretty crazy. It'll help us both to know someone else is out there doing our same runs.
I'll be posting the training plan here next week! If you haven't signed up for the Route 66 Marathon yet, you can do so here.
That's it for today! Have a great July Fourth!
