My Next Run

I'm freaking out a little bit about how this half marathon I've signed up for is sneaking up on me. In a mere 46 days I will be standing at the starting line and wondering what the heck I was thinking and how the heck I'm gonna huff and puff my way through 13.1 miles.

I don't feel nearly as confident as I did when this race was five months away. Five months ago I was like, "Bring it on!"......"13.1 miles? Pfft! I laugh at 13.1 miles."

Funny how time (and reality) change things.

The thought had occurred to me to just abandon this little blog and disappear quietly.

But instead I decided to ramp up the training and sign up for a 10k run in September. I picked Chicago's Lung Run on September 11th. It looks like a fun course along the lake shore. And I'm hoping the 8am start on a September morning right by the lake will be cooler than the crazy stupid heat we've got going on now.

And if the 10k kills me I don't have to run the half marathon, right?


  1. Running my first on Nov 26..... Good luck and have fun

  2. Thanks Will! I'm looking forward to it. (I think)

    Good luck with yours coming up too!
