I did it.
On October 29, 2011 I will run my very first marathon, the same race where I ran my very first half marathon.
During that race I figured out that on that day I will be 26.2 years old. How could I possibly pass that up?
Am I nervous? You bet. I didn’t think twice though about the registration too. As soon as I got the email about registration opening at noon yesterday I asked my mom if she could register me right at 12. (I was in the middle of teaching a class) Confession: I signed up right away to get a free training tech t-shirt. (I mean really. What better way to get motivation than to tell the world while I running that I’m training for a marathon!)
I’m freaking out but in a good way. I can’t wait to cross that finish line and say that I am a marathoner!
