Race Day Countdown: 10
The thing about distance running is that it's never enough. Ever. If I have done three miles, I need to do four. My first half-marathon is in a week and a half, and I'm already planning my first full marathon.
Running is like M&M's. Or crack. (Come to think of it, M&M's may be made of crack.)
Want to hear something scary?? Of course you do.
I found something worse than a full marathon. Ultra-marathons! Fifty miles. One hundred miles! Yikes. I should stop at a normal marathon. I think.
Want to hear something fantastic?? Yes? I just ran 13.3 miles!!! This race is going to be awesome. If you are in town, you should totally come and cheer me on! I'll buy you breakfast.
If you are reading this and thinking, "She's crazy and I hate her," let me reply. I would have hated me too, a year ago. I started running in September. I couldn't do 1/3 of a mile last February. One step at a time! You know you want to.
