Last year, about this very time, I was peeing on a stick discovering that I was pregnant with my second child. (TMI?) I was beyond thrilled to see that blue word “PREGNANT” on my First Response pregnancy test, but I was also a little bummed because I had just found out that I’d been given the opportunity to run the Sarasota Half Marathon courtesy of the Tampa Bay Bloggers.
Even though I still intended to run the race at 15 weeks preggo, I knew that it wouldn’t be the same as attempting it with full
bladder capacity athletic ability.
I did, in fact, finish the 2014 race, but knew deep down that I wanted another chance to redeem my efforts post pregnancy.
That’s why I’m so excited I’ve been given that exact opportunity again. On March 15th, 2015, I will attempt my second Sarasota Half Marathon.
I’ll have a second chance to score another gorgeous dolphin medal. And because it’s the 10th anniversary, I’ll also be awarded this premium quality, fitted, ultra-lightweight, running jacket. I’ll also have another opportunity to feast on the First Watch gourmet breakfast at the finish line party. (First Watch is my favorite breakfast/brunch spot)It’s my chance at redemption. I’m ready to take on the bridge and all that Sarasota Half Marathon has to offer.
If you would like a chance to redeem your past race, or make it a first attempt, don’t delay. Make sure you get registered before the half marathon sells out. ***The Relay is already sold out.***
Have you ever ran this half marathon or relay before?
What is one race that you’d like a chance at redemption?
