It's official

I signed up for the marathon last night. It only took a few minutes on the computer, and now I’m officially running a marathon. I’m also officially out $80. (And yes, that was the early discounted rate.) Who knew you’d have to fork over so much money to willingly put your body through 26 miles of near-torture? Am I officially crazy for doing this? I’m not sure yet. But, I do know that I’m a little terrified, very excited, and almost exhausted at just the thought of it all. I also know that I have a lot more running to do!

hey, this is so exciting! do you have a training program all set? you should tell us all about your progress . . .

i've run a few 10Ks, and they are so motivating for my daily workout (all that money, all those people who will see me if i am a total dropout).

i'm thinking of trying a half marathon, but just don't have the body for a full one. i think. so you go, girl!

Hi, I did 1 marathon in my running career! Somehow, it just never seemed the right time to do another one! So, i wish you luck and happy running!!! It's a terrific accomplishment to complete a marathon! Is this your first? Also, thanks for the comment on the movie Spirit of the Marathon on my blog! Makes me want to see it even more!!!

Wow. . .I am impressed with you just signing up to run in a marathon. I would love to do that SOME DAY! Keep us updated on your progress.

Have you ever heard of CARES by Apartment Life? That is who I work for in San Antonio, Austin and Houston. Just wondering! :)
