I've done a complete copy and paste of Ben's Blog…but it's for a good reason!

Folks, I don’t pimp my choir’s shows very often. I know this audience is wide and largely uninterested. However… those of you living within reach of Campbell, CA (just west of San Jose) should make the trip on June 5th or 6th.

We’re good. Really good. And this show is all music that you know. Here’s the real blurb:

June 5 and 6 at the Campbell Heritage Theatre

The Choral Project concludes its 2008-2009 season with Across the Universe, a light-hearted concert featuring music from film, television, stage, and radio. Familiar radio hits include songs by The Beatles, James Taylor, Queen, and Imogen Heap, as well as Broadway hits like For Good from Wicked, Where Is Love? from Oliver!, and much more! A little something for everyone!

Friday, June 5 · 8:00 PM
Saturday, June 6 · 8:00 PM

Run, Melanie, Run…

So I have two major runs I’ve been “training” for the past couple months.  The first is on June 14th and I’ll be doing the running portion of the Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon.   While I’ve run a marathon, a half marathon and several 10-12 Ks, I’m very nervous about this 8 mile run.  If you look at the course map, you can see it involved a lot of hills, beach running and a sand ladder!  Last weekend I went out and ran on Baker Beach and up the stairs as well and I’m going to try to do that a few more times.

The next is the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in October.  This run is so popular that you have to get in a lottery just to participate!  I didn’t get in last year but I got in this year!  Yay!  I’m pretty stoked about this and am really hoping to have a time a decent time.

Also, this weekend is the annual Bay To Breakers. It’ll be my 9th year participating although I haven’t run it the past 2 years.  I’m looking forward to this being a training run for June.  It’s about 7.5 miles and I’m actually going to try to run to mile 6, then run home to catch a WW meeting.  I’m not officially signed up so it’s not really important for me to run through the gates at the end.  If I do that the run will be about 8 miles.

Lots of motivation and I’ve been able to decrease my per mile time so fingers crossed that continues!
