Doc’s Log #13: Fitbloggin ’14 and Let’s Talk MarathonsNew from Dr. Marctagon
Some of you remember that a few weeks ago, that I was asking for your support to be a speaker at this year’s Fitbloggin’ conference. Unfortunately, I didn’t get in that way. I didn’t make the top by user choice, nor did I make the second 7 voted by the Fitbloggin’ committee.
So I took one last effort to get to Fitbloggin’ for free and I applied to liveblog one of the presentations during the conference…
..and guess what?
You guessed it, I got in! Your boy is going to Fitbloggin’ in Savannah, GA! This is such a blessing not only because it saved me money I didn’t really have at the moment but it also affords me the opportunity to attend my first fitness conference, meet some of my fitfam that I’ve been connecting with on Twitter for the last few years, as well as getting my blog some exposure.
So this works out to a win no matter how you view it!
But in other news…
I’ve decided not to apply for the New York City Marathon this year. I’m going to do the 9+1 guaranteed entry this year for next year. I haven’t run a race in over a year so some warm up races would be great plus also budgetary constraints. This month is a really tight month as far as expenses because of a transition I’m making with regard to my career so while the 9+1 will end up costing me more in the long run, it’s not an urgent cost I have to pay all at once plus I get a guaranteed spot for next year’s marathon.
But (and there always seems to be a but)…
I do have a marathon planned for this year. I’ve never been to the Caribbean and I’m SO in need of a vacation. So I will be heading to Jamaica where I’ll be running the Reggae Marathon! Why not kill 2 birds with one stone right?!
So 3 posts in 2 days, yeah that must be a new record for me. But I’ve had so much to tell that I needed to break it up. Let’s see if we can keep it at 3 days (not in a row) a week from now on.
Have a great weekend! *hugs and brownies*
