Big Sur Half Marathon – In Training…

In about 3 weeks I’ll be running the Big Sur Half Marathon with my dear friend Natalie. We are in training right now and things are going pretty well. I had a bit of a scare a couple of weeks ago when I accidentally ran 12.5 miles (I didn’t know how far I had gone until I got home and logged on to www.mapmyrun.com). I had chest pain for 3 days after the run, so finally I had to give in and visit the doctor to get an EKG. I was given the all clear, but was a bit scared to run again – especially after reading about the runners that died during last weekend’s Detroit Marathon. I’ve spent some time reading up on it this week and I think I will be fine if I hydrate a little better than I have been.

Anyway, on a happier note, my long play list for the run is coming together. I’ve got 3 current favorites: M.I.A – Paper Planes, Black Eyed Peas – Meet Me Halfway and surprisingly in at #1 Miley Cyrus (cringe) – The Climb.

I’m looking for suggestions, so if you have any please send them to me!

I’m also debating whether to run with my iphone (so I can take pictures along the way – I am fully aware of how ridiculous that sounds, but its soooo beautiful) or if I should just take my shuffle…it’s a tough one!
