Hey, hi, what’s up, Happy Marathon Monday!
It’s the first of many Marathon Mondays to come because I did something really big yesterday. I signed up for my first ever marathon. Insert ginormous gulp.
I honestly still can’t read the word, “marathon” without wincing a little. That’s a long distance, guys, and not something to wake up one morning and decide to do.
I love running, but I’m definately not immune to the pain, work and mental toughness that accompanies the hobby. If you ask me, some runners make it look stupidly easy. It could be that they subscribe to the, “fake it, ’til you make it” mantra or that I’m closer to the baby variety of runners.
Regardless, in 200-something days, I’ll be lining up to accomplish a goal that I frankly can’t get out of at this point. I’ve told enough relatives, friends and even had the actual marathon tweet me on Twitter that I can’t back out. I’m sucked into this twenty-six mile commitment.
