Have I mentioned yet that I’m running the Around the Bay 30km Road Race in March?
Yeah. I wrote 30km.
I have never gone beyond 21.1km before and I am freaking the frack out.
I signed up because a few short hours after the last CN Tower Stair Climb (where I may have been under the influence, and we all know that I am not supposed to drink), I *may* have told a fellow WeightWatchers.ca board member that I would run the race WITH her if she would do the climb again.
Because I’m so cocky about the climb being a breeze.
And running being so easy and all (insert eye roll here).
…when I’m drunk (of course).
…After one drink (I’m a cheap date – tell your single friends).
…and this is why I shouldn’t drink.
Have I been following the training schedule yet? Nope.
Have I been running much? Not really?
Will I be? Um, yes. I HAVE TO. …eventually.
I know I will finish the race, that’s a given. Even if I have to crawl. It will be a challenge for sure and something I will have to set out to best in years to come if I can muster up the desire to drag myself to Hamilton again *shudder*, but it makes me wonder if I will be crazy enough to challenge myself to do a marathon one day, something I had pondered before but then pushed out of my mind when my knees started to protest and I started to pack weight back on.
But a resolve to get healthy again, lose weight for good and push limits every day may make it a reality. Who knows what the future holds. Last year saw a lot of firsts for me and had me doing things I never thought I’d do, so who knows what’s in the cards.
I won’t count it out but I’m not going to set it in stone either.
But this one is already bought and paid for.
I’ll quit my whining now, suck it up and start my training. The booze got me in trouble, but my feet will get me out of it.
Was there ever a challenge that you got yourself into that you just couldn’t face or that you completed a tough one that you never imagined you could?
