Yeah Goofy. So I convinced Tara that we should sign up for the 12-12-12 Virtual Race to shake things up. So in the spirit of celebrating 12-12-12, you could sign up for 1.2 miles, 12K or 12 miles for $12.12. And you get a medal in the mail. Sold.
Originally, I planned for 12 miles, but I got held up at work and left later than I had planned, so we shaved it down to a 12K. It's something, right?
I printed off our "race bibs" and personalized them. Looks professional, huh?
Then I raced over to Tara's. She lives a bits of a ways from me in Tempe, but she's close to a lot of great running areas.
|Ready to run|
Annnnnd then after whining and griping for a decent amount of time, we headed out toward Tempe Town Lake near ASU.
|Challenge accepted, Mr. Bridge.|
|I don't know what's happening here.|
We jogged along a little more and then crossed over another bridge that leads to the Tempe Center for the Arts.

|There was a symphony rehearsal going on...|
We stopped at In & Out for a bathroom break, and it's a good thing neither of us had money at the time, because we probably would have ordered food.
So that sums up our Virtual Race. I'm feeling a little disillusioned as far as Goofy goes. I was exhausted last night and running 7.5 miles was somewhat of a struggle. I'm hoping it's just because the last few weeks have been extremely draining and I haven't gotten a lot of sleep.
Although, I was excited to see my Goofy race number today...and a little scared. Race waivers are ready to download! Eeek. I hope everyone else is doing better in their training than me.
