Am I Crazy??


Long ago, if I caught a glimpse of a marathon on tv, I would think to myself, "Why, why, why?" Quite frankly, the appeal of running 26 grueling miles escaped me. What are these people trying to prove? Then, I began to hear about people I knew running marathons. I became intrigued. Since January, everytime I hear about somebody that ran PF Changs, I find myself feeling a little envious. I know...sounds crazy! I am jealous they ran 26 miles? Well, yes, I am. I realize I do have something to prove. I want to prove to myself that I can commit, train, and complete it. See, I have always had this dillusional assumption that I can do anything. And...I am far too competetive for my own good. In combination, these traits lead to some hasty and sometimes regretable decisions like the one I am about to make. I am going to run the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in January! I have publicly committed and paid the $90 entry fee (and if you know me, I would never waste 90 bucks!). This means I am in. I will keep you posted on the training...
