The Seattle Marathon was about a week and a half ago. I had a number of friends who ran the race–both the half and the full. Watching them train brought up a lot of guilt for me. I knew I should have been training for something. Or at least running. But I wasn’t. Instead, I was watching as they were getting into race shape, I was feeling sorry for myself. As they were getting healthy, I was gaining weight.
I was and am very happy for them. But now I will be in their shoes. I’ve signed up for the Mercer Island 1/2 at the end of March. And I will rock it. I’m so excited (though I haven’t actually started on the running yet–baby steps!) to be back to where I can run 13.1 miles. It’ll be my third half, and it will be awesome.
So there you have it. I have my next race scheduled. What about you?
