Day 79 - 4 days to go!! Ready or Not...


Here we go - only four days left!  

Got back in the gym today and ran for 3 miles.  Felt really good and miracle of miracles - my I-Pod came back to life!  Yippee!!  Thank you Lord for small mercies.

So, there's some good news and bad news - the good news is, I think I'm going to keep this blog going past the marathon, I've really loved writing it and a few of you have said that you'd miss it - so I figure that I should keep this thing up.

The bad news is (or good depending on the day) I'm going to have to come up with an entirely new finish line to shoot for in order to justify keeping this going...

Well, what does every athlete do after winning their big game?

They go to DISNEYLAND!  And I think I might just do that too -- Labor day weekend - Disneyland has a cool race thru the theme park -- what could be more fun than  dressing up like your favorite Disney character and running 13 miles thru a theme park as Mickey and Co.  cheers you on and rides like "Magic Mountain" and "Small World" wait to usher you back to your youth?

OK, stop laughing.  Yeah, there are a lot of things that could be more fun but no matter!  I think I'm going to sign up for this (at the suggestion of running buddy Angela) where our new challenge will be to run the entire 13 miles without ever stopping to walk -- and with an obvious desire to improve my time.

Just have to run it by hubby and see if I can swing it.  Will keep you posted!

Hmmm, I always wanted to channel my inner Tinker Bell.
