That's exactly the tune I will be singing this weekend at the MORE Magazine/Fitness Magazine Women's Half Marathon run in New York City. (As seen above.) Nope, I'm not running this time (but I'd be lying if I said I didn't think about signing up!)

I'm going down with a friend of mine, Kyra who is the Founder, Chief Runner and mother of 3 for Women Run. Women Run is a really cool women's running and clothing apparel company that supports all the shoes that women wear as we run.

Be it the household, carpools, soccer league or our own businesses, women are running a lot! We'll be chilling at our Women Run booth at the Runner's Expo for the Half Marathon Friday and Saturday.

If you are running in this half - or in NYC for the weekend, please stop by our table in the Metropolitan Pavilion and say hi. We'd love to meet you. (And kit you up in Women's Run gear of course.)

It will be a change of scenery for me, being on the sidelines this Sunday cheering on the 9,000 women running. Usually I'm the one being cheered on, but I'm super excited to support these great women.

No doubt I shall be hoarse on Sunday night after hours of cheering and yelling encouragement to everyone on the course. (Bring on the Burt's Bees throat lozengers.)

I do fully expect to feel the pull to lace up my sneaks and hit the pavement on Sunday! Running has become something I do for my mind and sanity while my body gets to reap the benefits of that. For me, it's just about having movement, activity in my day.

It will be darn hard to watch everyone else run while I just stand there and watch...I might just come dressed in running gear...maybe...just maybe.

So I ask you this about your weekend plans. What are you going to do to cheer someone else on?

In the comments below my blog, (CLICK HERE) I'd love to hear how you will cheer someone else on this weekend. Show someone else some love and tell me what you are going to do. Bonus points if you take pics of your weekend and tweet 'em or toss 'em up on instagram --> don't forget to tag me in them! @JohannaVoss

As always, thanks so much for reading. I'm off to pack for my trip to NYC!
