Sleep Running!

So you all know I can't resist free fitness opportunities, and the New York Road Runner's is offering free registration for their Anniversary Run on June 4th, and you all know I can't pass up free fitness opportunities! (It usually costs around $15 for NYRR members.) This races counts as a qualifier for the New York Marathon entry. In case you don't know, if you run 9 races within a year with New York Road Runners and volunteer at two races, you get automatic entry into the NYC IMG Marathon the next year. Otherwise you can enter the lotto, but chances are slim (I am in it for 2009), or donate a lot of $. If you enter the lotto 3 times in a row and don't get in, you automatically get in. There are other ways to get in, but those are the basic ones.

So the catch is that it starts at 5:30 am on a Wednesday morning. OMG is that early. However, in coercing my friend to do it with me, we came up with a brilliant plan--run in our pajamas.

But of course, pajamas alone was not enough, by the end of our plotting we decided to wear pajamas, rollers in our hair, eye masks, and to hold teddy bears. Yes, while we are in our 20's and 30's, this seems fun and hilarious--and not at all lame. Plus, it's a great excuse for a slumber party on a school You all are welcome to join, pajamas and rollers optional! Sunrise and invitation to post-run coffee included!

Don't worry, there will be photos!
