Holy cow! I have a ton of people to thank this week. I really don’t know if I can express how much it meant for me to read all of your comments about the half. The support in this running/blogging community is unbelievable. And so many of my Facebook friends were encouraging me during the race as I updated my status. It was like having a virtual cheering section!
I know I was having second thoughts about doing a full marathon, but I will not be able to live with myself if I don’t go for it now while I’m young-ish and healthy. Because (not to be a downer), who knows what the future brings? Right?
AND thank you so much to all of my new followers. I’ve really enjoyed “meeting” all of you and seeing where you are in your goal-chasing! I’m giving you all a new name, though, because “followers” sounds weird to me.
I hope everyone had a more productive day in running than I did. I have nothing to report. December is just B-U-S-Y. I’m hoping to go for a run tomorrow morning, but I may chicken out if it’s too cold. Also, I may be up all night reading my book for a book club meeting tomorrow evening, so…yeah, the run may not happen. In fact, don’t hold your breath.
Definitely Saturday, though.
The support is amazing isn't it. Yay for reading… I have a stack of books and magazines but there's this thing called the internet that I seem to be addicted to lol.
What's even better for you is that you live near some of your virtual running buddies and can actually see them in 3-D. That part is awesome.I've enjoyed your blog immensely! I just wish I would have found it much sooner than when I did.
@Lisa – LOL! The Internet is why I'm sitting here ready my book at 7:54 in the [email protected] – Aw. Thank you.
Your new profile pic is awesome! And I love “Virtual Running Buddies”–woo hoo!
It was COLD this morning.. Wow!!
Hey! What about us old(er) farts?! Stay healthy and stay mentally young and you'll be able to run far into your older years. Ididn't even start running seriously until I was 50, and ran my first marathon at the ripe age of 51! I'll be doing #3 in March a couple months after I turn 53.The key is patience. Be patient with your training. Just like you wouldn't expect your young children to wake up tomorrow and run 10 miles, don't wake up next month and expect to qualify for Boston. So many people get hurt by losing their patience and trying to do too much too quickly.
