If anyone would've told me eighteen months ago that I would be lookng forward to running, much less 2+ hours.....multiple times, I would have called the men with the funny white coats to take them away, BUT IT'S TRUE! And the closer that day comes, the more I am looking forward to my first half. To make it EVEN better, one of my favorite running buddies, who I don't get to run with except once a month or so has just signed up and is running her first with me!
Two weeks ago, we both ran our longest runs in our llives together and we are meeting up on Saturday early to do a 12 miler. The shorter runs we do alone since we live about 45 mins away from each other. We are getting together every other week for the long long runs though....meeting halfway for the runs.
That race is the Chicago Half-Marathon on 9/11 and then I have 5 weeks until my second ... where I am hoping to meet another Sparker (Nicholas - AbsoluteZero) and see my baby sis and her son, who I haven't seen in a few years now. This is going to be an awesome fall!!! WOOHOO!!!!!
