Have you seen Valerie Bertinelli getting teary eyed in the new Jenny Craig commercial? She’s talking about finishing her first half marathon. (And, here’s a really
funny mean blog post about it.)
Is it me or is everyone doing a half marathon these days? I swear I see a new Facebook update every day that talks about half-marathon training. I didn’t know so many people loved to run.
Maybe halfs are simply in style right now. Or, has it always been like this and I am just noticing it more? Is this like when you find out you’re pregnant and then everyone you meet has a baby bump of their own? Or, am I part of some worldwide half-marathon fad?
Whatever it is, it’s keeping my enthusiasm up. In fact, I’m itching to get started on my new training schedule, but it doesn’t start till next week. I’m trying to restrain myself and continue what I have been doing until then.
Today, I worked from home, so I went back and forth between writing and editing copy for new DVD boxes, and changing poopy diapers and singing Winnie-the-Pooh. Good times.
I was definitely ready for a walk this evening. Actually, it turned out to be more of a stroll to and from the park. That’s okay. We had fun.
