Last Chance & 10K Prep

Today is your very last chance to enter my 50 Followers Giveaway! I'm so excited that I've reached over 50 followers, and I can't wait to keep meeting even more of you via the world wide blogging web.
           If you want to be in the running for the $25 iTunes gift card, check out the giveaway post and let me know in a comment if you're...

2. A follower on Twitter!
3. Like my Facebook page!
          You get one entry per item! You have until 11:59EST PM tonight to enter. I really hope you do! On a completely unrelated to my blog note, I am running my very first 10K on Saturday morning. I'm getting really pumped for it, but I also have those tiny little butterflies starting to stir in my stomach.
           What race am I running you ask? It's the NYRR Mini 10K in Central Park. Yesterday, while letting my nerves float to the surface, I looked up last year's results just to make sure I wouldn't come in last. As I flipped through page after page of runners, I noticed that there were over 3,000 people! Holy cow!
           For someone who has been running for a very long time, I have never run a race with this many people. (I'll recap my other races at some point, promise.) This got me really excited, and the even better side to this race? Women only!
           The race starts at 8AM on Saturday, so I'll be taking a 5:12 train into the city. My parents, sister, M, and sister's boyfriend are all coming in to see me finish. Don't worry, I don't expect them to take that early train with me. Can't wait to run on Saturday! I'll be sure to post all about it next week!
Can't wait to see this guy tomorrow!

Yay 10K!!
You're going to do SO well!
Sending you some good relaxation vibes. We're doing another 6 miles with the marathon training team on Saturday morning, so it'll be like we're running twin distances in different cities :)
