Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.

Registered for Marathon

I'd been tossing the idea back and forth that I wanted to complete a marathon this year. I had said (last year) that I wanted to complete a marathon before I turned 40. Well..... I'll be 40 in March.

I was considering doing the Harrisburg marathon, and was trying to talk a friend into doing it with me. She wasn't convinced that she wanted to do it. The River Front  is a nice place to run, but (said with a whine) we run it all of the time. The thoughts of running a marathon there, especially our first marathon, was not something she (or me either) really wanted to do.

So, I found two other Marathons within our time frame. One was Baltimore and the other was Philadelphia. We both wanted to run Baltimore, but it was in October (a month less training) and the date really didn't work for either of us. So we took a look at Philadelphia.

After an evening of looking it over, clearing it with our husbands that they could watch the kids, we decided to register. Step by step (on the phone with each other), we clicked our way through the pages until we reached the end and submitted our registration.

Gulp, well it's real now. 

By the end of the night, we'd already booked our hotel....let the training begin.
