    I think the classic ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ was the huge song for my friends and I. We played it as the last song at our wedding too and everyone gathered in a circle and sang, so fun! πŸ™‚

    Oddly enough I was just wondering today if you were racing Gasparilla since it’s in your “hometown.” Yay! It’s SUCH a great race and that medal is kick ass. We need to meet up (I’ll be with Paula, of course). I’m hoping for 1:55 PR. Not sure if I can do it, but I am going to give it all I’ve got!

    Good luck this weekend!

    Hahah I hear the Toby Keith version of that song EVERY morning on my ride to work. Gets stuck in my head every time without fail!

    Every time you run a race I’m inspired to get out there and make a plan to run my FIRST…why have I not done this yet? πŸ˜‰

    I love Gasparilla! I did the 15K in 2010 and attempted the Ultra Challenge last year. It’s usually one of my favorite weekends of the year because I escape the cold Northeast winter, get to run in the sun on a flat course, visit with a good friend (usually force her to run with me), and squeeze in a trip to MLB Spring Training camps. Gasparilla is still one of the most well-organized and fun events out there. The expo is always awesome and we’ve never had a problem with parking or potty lines

    Good Luck this weekend! I’m in corral 2 (i’ll have a suncoast striders tank on) – I was planning on trying to PR, but my IT band has been acting up all week so I’m not sure what I’m going to do now. I also have a back-up half, just in case. Not gasparilla, but another local race.

    I’m doing Gasparilla this year too! I’m doing the Beck’s Light Challenge and I’m not sure how I will feel on Sunday for the half after two races on Saturday, but I am excited. My goal for the weekend is to just survive!

    Good luck! I just heard the red solo cup song (I don’t get out much!) recently and definitely laughed the first time but after a few times now, I can’t help but think how ridiculous the song is!

    Don’t Stop Believin’ and Sweet Caroline (I don’t know why?) were two popular songs when I was in undergrad. Brings back memories πŸ™‚

    Is there a particular reason your trying to PR? Just curious because I have my first half on April 1st and my goal is under 1:50:59 so I can make it into a corral for the Chicago Marathon!!! I’m hoping my cousin will help pace me, she’s a well-seasoned runner and already made it into an even better corral!

      I just want to PR because I haven’t attempted a PR since 09! I needed to give myself a new challenge.

    This is totally dorky, but I dedicated a previous Furry Friday to the Red Solo Cup song! http://www.starpulp.com/2011/12/30/furry-friday-toby-keith-version/

    I didn’t know Glee covered that song, so that’s pretty funny.

    Good Luck on your race! I’m registered for the Gasparilla 5+3K (lol – not sure why they’re calling it that instead of 8K but whatever). It’s my first race (!) and I’m hoping my tendonitis is resolved by then so I can run it. I’m glad to hear it’s a well-organized event.

    In college a bunch of my GFs and I would always sing Wilson Phillips ‘Hold On’ at the top of our lungs at karaoke…still love that song.

    Also, how are the PB cheerios?! I have been wanting to try them but they have kind of a lot of sugar….

    Red Solo Cup definitely cracks me up! I also remember Friends In Low places being one of the big drinking songs in college at sorority functions. Good times!

    I’m running Gasparilla and I’ll be heading out there by myself so I’d love to see you at the start.

    Just a question- how much have your times improved over the time you’ve been running? I just can’t seem to get faster….strong like bull…slow like snail.
