Yesterday, I signed my death sentence.
*REWIND TO OCT 06*
*FAST FORWARD TO FEB 19, 2007*
Last night Panda & I signed up to run the Shamrock Shuffle on March 25 and the Spirit of St. Louis Half Marathon on April 15. If I can recall properly, I couldn’t get her to run 3 miles and now I’m running a half marathon with Panda, Fat Hobbit, Besch, Dave Doyle, and who knows who else. This is a lesson best defined as “careful in what you say.”
It’s not that I’m not looking forward to it, because I am. I’ve very excited for the Shamrock Shuffle. After running the Turkey Trot, I’m ready for my next race. Now the half marathon on the other hand…I’m uber nervous about. I blame Fat Hobbit for inspiring all of us and telling us that we can do this. Damn him!
Yes, I’ve been training. My splits went from 12:30 to 8 now. That’s good right? We’ll see how the next few weeks of training go. I can’t believe I’m going to do this. To make things even better, I promised myself that if I do the half marathon well, I will be doing the marathon next. What was I thinking?
