I signed up for all three races – the 5K, then the Mile On The Sand, and then the 1/2 on Sunday because YOLO. I don’t think I’ve ever run three races in one weekend other than during a Ragnar but I don’t think that counts because it’s more like one race where you run three times {technically that’s exactly what it is lol}.

I haven’t been to Virginia Beach in forever and a day. Actually the last time I went may have been for a race I was working…and that was long before I had kids. I used to wonder at what point in life you started forgetting things….I’ve apparently reached that point.

My highschool bestie Natalia lives down in Virginia Beach and I can’t wait to see her when I’m down there. She is a radio DJ for z104 and one of the most beautiful {inside and out} women I know!

I was digging through stuff in my basement the other day and found an old scrapbook I made. YES, I used to scrapbook…..and I stopped once I had kids. So I did the reverse of what most people do – which is typical for me in just about everything…..

Virginia Beach - z104 Natalia

I digress….I can’t stop laughing looking at these pictures. What on earth?! The bottom right picture is a picture of us before work one night – we were cocktail waitresses together one summer {which is a story for another day}. First – those outfits are hideous and second WHHYYYY did I think my hair looked good like that? And does Natalia have a giant ribbon in her hair? I’m soooooo glad that I didn’t grow up in the age of social media. I didn’t have a facebook account till I was out of college and I thank the good Lord every day for that 😉

Last but not least if you live in the Virginia Beach area there is a course preview run this Saturday, August 5. The run will start at the new start line (14th and Pacific) and preview about 10 miles of the half marathon course, with optional turnaround points for those who want to run a shorter distance. You can find the official event here:

32 days till race day!
