Hi friends! I cannot thank you enough for your support. You have no idea how much you have helped me with the loss of my kitty. Your kind words meant the world to me. I’m doing much better now (obviously still miss her but I’m getting to a good place).
Let’s talk about happy things shall we?
Along with kitty drama (that’s what we’ll call it), Kyle and I moved and have been living in our new house! All I can say is projects, projects, projects. Hopefully I can keep up frequent blogging with house stuff, grad school, and running 😉
About that running…
39.3 is the number I am referring to in the title of this post. 39.3 miles to be more precise.
A few weeks ago, my friend Michelle (she is a crazy amazing runner), asked me if I wanted to run the Morgan Hill Marathon. She is pacing it and wanted to give me a race entry (nicest. person. ever.)! I have been going back and forth for a while now- to run or not to run a full freaking marathon? This seemed like the perfect opportunity to me.
So that’s right. I am currently in training for my FIRST MARATHON! I don’t have as many weeks as I would have liked to start training, so we are playing it by ear. Basically, if I don’t feel ready when we get close, I will switch to the half marathon. Not worth an injury! And I have no time goals- just FINISH the damn thing.
Now, the number I said was 39.3. But Amy, a marathon is 26.2 miles.
Well…I had already signed up to run the Berkeley Half Marathon which just so happens to fall…one weekend after the Morgan Hill Marathon.
So, if all goes according to plan, I will be running my first marathon followed by a half marathon 1 week later. The half I will obviously run slowly and just for fun.
I think I may be crazy. And this is why you shouldn’t make big decisions after going through a traumatic experience. Friends, remind me of this if I ever want to get a haircut after losing a pet.
Marathon runners- gimme yo advice!
Any funny first marathon stories?
