i wonder how bad i stunk at the end of the Mackinac Island Race?
i'm thinking Tess was trying to smile for the picture but she's real short and i guess someones face that close to an armpit of a stinky runner is hard to mask.
It's like her thought bubble should read "Hurry up, someone take the picture or i'm gonna hurl"
Anyway, a million thanks to Tess for the invite again.
Bring on the windy city.
Lisa has been struggling a little with some pain, and nervous energy. i can't speak for the pain. i do know personally, pain sucks. So an injury 5 weeks to the big first marathon can be a major bummer, ergo...nervous energy.
So, my friend, and parent to my godchild. Relax....i bet you could stop training now for 2 weeks, just stick to your low impact, aerobic, i.e. biking, eliptical, etc... finish the last 2 weeks of training and still finish in Chicago.
I, ooooh a capital I (must be important), know you can and i'm betting you know it too.
Wanna know why i know? of course you do or you wouldn't keep reading this blog. Gawd, i hope someone reads this... i must be getting boring. i need a juicy political tirade or gossip item to pepper the blog with.
back to the thought... i know cause i feel i can finish a marathon today. If i can do it, 15 lbs overweight still, not quit smoking yet, eating bad foods too often, can feel i can finish a marathon, than so can you. And if you need a visual aid, check out the rock hard bod of the woman next to your profile. That is a finisher.
Coming soon.... a feel a thought surfacing about the unnecessary mystique celebrities feel their offspring don't unnecessarily deserve.
....a thought about the advantages of charter schools from a man whose kids go to public
....a thought about anything other than running, training, splits, pr's, gu, shoes, for christ's sake this can get obsessive.
thanks for reading
