Being told to get the scowl off my face and pose for a group photo. It was July and it was COLD!
Freezing and scared
Almost done!! Team Tri Donkai representin'! I had people braying at me the whole run.
Crossing the finish. DONE!
And then I went home and slept for several hours.
NYE 2008 I made a pact w/ friends (same damn crazy ones + husbands) to do a half-marathon last May (May '10). I trained and made it to roughly 8mi or so when I had to quit. I had bronchitis. Then pneumonia. Then I tested positive for the Epstein-Barr virus. I was so tired I couldn't function. I needed to get better. So I dropped out.
My husband finished, though! As did those other crazies :)
This year, he decided that he's not getting younger and he wanted to do it once, so he signed up for the full. I thought he was crazy insane nutso.
In a moment of pure insanity, I registered for my first half-marathon.
I am signed up to do the inaugural Summerfest Rock n Sole Half-Marathon
Hold me now. I am shakin' in my boots.
My training officially starts mid-April, but I am going to get a jump start on it, just because I feel like I need extra time.
