after 4 months of training (which was not nearly long enough), the time has almost come to prove if i'm woman enough to conquer 26.2 miles of pavement. think about it, 26.2 miles will probably take me 4 1/2 hours (if i'm lucky)! 4 1/2 hours of non-stop exercising, constant motion, aching muscles and joints, chaffing of places that should not see the light of day, blisters in between my toes, salty sweat caked to my face, but i keep reminding myself that this is something that i chose to do. 4 1/2 hours of sweating and heavy breathing, and months training...kind of sounds like having a baby, and probably just as painful. so, when i cross that finish line on sunday and they hand me that shiny medal, you can bet i'll be swaddling and cuddling that thing like it's my newest born child!
my boys husband gave me a good luck gift today. i've been hinting for about a month now that i needed something smaller than what i had. don't get me wrong, the ipod is pretty damn small, but the shuffle...holy crap it's tiny! no more giant stinky armband for me. (and no, that is not my man hand in the picture)
i can't believe i'm going to be running a marathon!!
