Long Beach Marathon is taking over my life

Remember the race where I had my ‘redemption’ in the marathon? The race that I love so much and hope that everyone runs once in their life because it’s a fast, flat, fun course and it’s where I may have falling back in love with racing and running? Where I was doing jazz hands like some kind of freak at mile 25 because I was so happy? Where I read the race report and to this day it makes me cry?

I am super excited to share with you guys that I will be leaving my job at the advertising agency that I have worked at for the past year and a half and will be taking a job with ICR, which stands for International City Racing. They put on many races, including the Long Beach Marathon! I am so excited about this opportunity and working with the great team at ICR. I can’t believe that my blog turned into something and now I will be doing marketing, event planning and social media for them. It basically is my dream job and I’m still pinching myself about the opportunity I have in front of me. Running, social media, writing, all things I LOVE! All I can think about is how excited and happy I am for this opportunity.

Don’t worry, I’ll still be the little blogging machine that I’ve become and will still be running tons which I have to share tomorrow some great races that I will be running soon as well. There are some great shorter ones coming up that I’m excited about.

YAY! I’m so excited. Anyways, that is big news for me in my little world and of course since my little world has spilled onto the Internet canvas, you all get to share in my joy!

If you are looking for a running related Valentine’s Day gift idea check out my recent post on the Examiner too. Those gifts would make this little runner girl pretty happy.

Okay, I’m going to go pinch myself and make sure I’m not dreaming.
