I'm Running Like a Diva!


I’m running like a Diva!  I’m doing the Diva Half Marathon in North Myrtle Beach on May 20, 2012.  I have wanted to do this race since I first heard about it.  My sisters and I had planned to do this race together, but as it gets closer all three have changed their minds.  My mom and grandmom will take a road trip to South Carolina with my daughter and I. 

The Diva Half Marathon sounds just as girly as the Disney Princess, but with a twist of sass.  There is a feather boa station and tiara stop.  At the finish, there are bubbly and roses.  The finisher medal is presented by a hot fireman.  How fun! 

I have never been to Myrtle Beach.  I have driven through South Carolina on the way to Florida once and I have visited Hilton Head, but never Myrtle Beach.  I have done some research online about MB and it looks nice.  I can’t wait to tell you all about it!

With only 7 weeks until Diva, I have to step up my training!  I was planning on 9 weeks until another half marathon—the Rock and Roll half in San Diego with Team in Training is June 3rd.  I looked over my San Diego training plan and the weekend of the Diva race is the weekend I a scheduled to do 14 miles, so the Diva will substitute nicely. 


Have you ever done a Diva race?  Will you be at the North Myrtle Beach Diva half marathon?

A dream is a wish…

  5. 7 weeks?! Oh man, I just can't swing that right now. I'm not ready for 13 miles right now and I can't afford that kind of weekend away - even though it is driving distance. Have fun!
