Originally, I was not going to run in another event until the Country Music Half Marathon at the end of the month, but an opportunity for another one presented itself this week. Therefore, Saturday morning, I shall be running in the Doc Rock and Run Half Marathon in Jonesboro, AR. It is for a good cause. It is described on the website as follows:
The Doc Rock ‘N Run is hosted by the physicians of St. Bernards Medical Group and the physician band Doc Rock. The Race benefits the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St. Bernards, the only Level III NICU in northeast Arkansas caring for premature infants as young as 32 weeks. Come make a big difference in a little life by running in the 1/2 marathon or 5K race on Saturday, and encourage your child to participate in the 1/2 marathon challenge with the 1 mile race on Sunday.
This will be the quickest turnaround for a race of this distance for me. It will be interesting to see how my body reacts to a second half marathon in a week. I feel confident that I will do just fine, and I am excited to try something new.
