We signed up...

...and we are 100% committed! Wish us luck as we train for the full marathon in June!
Brandon really is the inspiration for us running this race. He's been talking about running a marathon together ever since we got married. He's the one that signed us up and I couldn't be more excited. I need a race to look forward to and make me run. I honestly haven't run even one day in the past few months so this should be interesting. But it will be a lot of fun to train and run this race with my best friend.
The course looks amazing. We will run from Tukwila to Seattle along Lake Washington, Lake Union, and the Sound! At every mile along the course there is a different band playing. Then at the end of the race there is a huge concert for the runners. It should be a lot of fun! I just pray for a nice sunny day with no rain!

Brandon's facebook status made him sound a little less than excited. I am glad to know it was really his idea.

Yay for Karen and her races!! Remember going to St. George? After that, you inspired me to run the Salt Lake half. James decided to do it with me and it was awesome training with him and running the race together! Sounds like a blast with all of the bands playing. I'm not brave enough to do a full, but I know that you guys will kill it!! Can't wait to see pictures
