So… I may have just signed up for the Hartford marathon. I had planned to all along, but figured I’d wait until I got further along in my training before actually biting the bullet. You know something a little more prolonged than my current running time of 31 minutes.
Once again I blame you, Tumblr. The Hartford marathon is actually the same weekend as the Chicago marathon that everyone on tumblr seems to be eagerly anticipating so I got all caught up in the excitement and before I knew it I was pounding out my 16-digit credit card number.
I thought about going all out and doing the Chicago one but since it’s during on of my busy times of the year, I figured it would be easier to stay close to home.
So there’s that.
Also, I bit the bullet and signed up for the Athena category even though I don’t appreciate being called out as a big girl for being over 150 pounds. One part of me thought: assholes. But the other part of me thought: you need all the help you can get!
And so the countdown begins: 235 days to go!
