(that one is for jainey)
So this weekend sees me running yet another half marathon, the ninth of my running career. I only started REALLY running in 2006 with a little 5k race that holds a special place in my heart and it has spiralled out from there to even coaching Running Room clinics with Super Sam.
But next year, I’m going to go where no mouse has gone before and testing my limits: the marathon.
I know I’ve brought it up before, but in a few months it’s going to become all consuming, so I thought I should warn you as it’s going to change everything around here. Yes, I know I’m going to be a whole new brand of crazy, become a part of a crowd that I truly do not understand on a good day and perhaps become a person that I hate, but I hope that you stick with me for that entire journey.
So, you may notice from now until next May that my focus will shift to striving to eat a lot cleaner, to running a heck of a lot more, to talking about how much my body hates me, but hopefully I will still love it despite all of the rolls and scars that make it unique, that make it me.
And maybe, like Krissie did before me, you’ll choose to run a race along side of me. Maybe not a full, but a half, a 10 mile, a 10k or a 5k. Just something to be active and put the rubber to the road. Or maybe not. Athletic supporters are always welcome too :)
Either way, there’s a lot of great stuff on the horizon that scares the crap out of me.
I hope you stick around and help me through it.
