Funny thing - I was just looking for the website for this race and came across a website that had a photo of running shoes, a girl in ski gear, and a funny pink, silicon, funnel-like thing: GO GIRL. I have to share because I've never seen anything like this and I think it's interesting. I can definitely think of a few scenarios where this female urination device (FUD) would have come in handy.
ANYONE out there use a GoGirl or similar device?
Ok, so what’s a GoGirl?
Simply put, GoGirl is the way to stand up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms. It’s a female urination device (sometimes called a FUD) that allows you to pee while standing up. It’s neat. It’s discreet. It’s hygienic.
If you camp, you’ll love GoGirl. If you ski, you’ll love GoGirl. If you boat, you’ll love GoGirl. If you travel, you’ll love GoGirl. If you just want to avoid the germs you find in nasty public toilets, you’ll love GoGirl. GoGirl is for active women of all types and ages.
Back to the YOU GO GIRL 10K race...
In addition to the 10k, there is a half marathon that Becka in Colorado @ 50HalfMarathonsIn50States is running (a bloggy meeting!) along with a lot of blogging ladies from the greater Seattle area. I think it should be a good time if I can find everyone. Even one of my aunts is running the half marathon (with a team, Racing Divas).
To prep for this distance, I downloaded another Smart Coach plan from RW:
I had to lie about my current 5k race time to get it to give me some faster pacing goals for training. Instead of entering a current time, I wish it asked you to enter a GOAL race time. Maybe I should have just entered that? Like this past weekend's 5k, I hope to run the 10k as close to 8:00 min/mile as possible.
Let the training begin!
