LA Marathon

Thursday, September 27, 2007

Most of my friends have asked me "why?"

My husband shakes his head and asks "why?"

Most importantly my body really yearns to know "why?".

And truthfully, I don't have much of an answer.

Expect I want to face the challenge, I need the motivation to get me out out of the office and off my butt, and I love the feeling at the finish. After a year and a half of rest I've decided to lace those shoes back up and begin training again.

LA Marathon here I come!

The pain starts around 5:30am on March 2nd and will subside, hopefully, about 4 hours later. (I'm hoping to improve my SF Marathon time.)

I need to make a public declaration of my intentions to run, or I will be tempted to back-out. 26.2 miles is grueling....but for some explainable reason I keep coming back.
