I know that is a super exciting headline and all, but what can I say? My creative cup runneth over. And as that headline suggests I’ve decided on my 10th marathon…or rather my 10th marathon has decided on me! On a quasi-whim a while back I entered into the Chicago Marathon lottery and for some reason, I had a feeling that I would in fact get in. I suspect it’s because I wasn’t really concerned about it. That’s how it works right? That’s not to say I’m not excited, because I so am, but I tend to “get” things when I’m not dyyyyying for them. Hashtag thanks universe.

So of course thus begins the “what is my goal” thinking. I definitely want to try for sub 4. I had a great time at Myrtle Beach Marathon and ran a 4:06. I don’t think my training was all that great, but I am not complaining about a 4:06. However, of course I’d like to run faster and get back under 4 hours. I’ve done that once. And you know what? I think I can do it again. I just need to really focus my efforts on it and not get derailed by travel and life. Easier said than done.

Now on to that housekeeping…

In 2017 I was extremely honored to have been chosen as an ambassador for Smashfest Queen. And I loved being on the Smash team. I think they truly make some of the best looking kits out there. I met a lot of wonderful women and am proud to have represented Smashfest Queen for 2017. Heading into 2018 though, I decided not to reapply to be on the team. My reason is that as a coach for Tribal Multisport, which I became after I joined the Smashfest team, I want to wear all the Tribal gear I can and support my own group that way.

I’ll always have a soft spot for those gorgeous Smash kits, but I wanna rep my Tribe and this is the best way for me to do it. Be prepared to see #TribePride on my social posts even more in 2018.

And speaking of ambassador programs, I have decided to stay on board with 73 Threads. The reason for this is that we made some awesome Tribal Multisport shirts with them and their t-shirts are just fun, plus I’m not required to wear them at events. But I do love to wear them to work and on other days! You can still use my code DISCOMBOBULATED for 10% off.

Of course, in addition to 73 Threads, I’m also still a Best Damn Race ambassador and you can use code UNICORN for $5 off any location and any distance.

That’s it for me. Have a great week!
