Big Announcement: I’m running a marathon
September 4, 2013

(By the way, I know I’m beyond overdue for race reports.  Many have been started and they are on their way.  I promise.)

º

Never say never.  I always said I’d never run a marathon.  I mean, c’mon, 26.2 miles??  Really, even 13.1 miles is absurd.  So anything over a half marathon is just plain ridiculous.

º

But I have plenty of friends who run marathons.  They love it.  But I just don’t know that my body is meant to go that distance.  I ran 15 miles once this summer and it was awful.  {insert Grumpy Cat meme}  Granted it was the day after I rode 70 miles and it was during a heat and humidity wave.

º

Nonetheless, I’ve decided I’m going to run a marathon anyway.  But…you know me, I can’t just run any marathon.  If I’m going to do this, it may be the only time I ever do this.  So why not do it in style?

º

So, instead of just running a marathon.  I’m going to warm up before the run, by swimming 2.4 miles.  Yeah, crazy huh?

º

But ya know what? That’s still not enough.  I’m going to also ride my bike for 112miles.  Absolutely nuts!

º

So I guess you figured out what my big announcement is by now…
