"Psst - you wanna buy some crAcK?"

Yea, that happened to me yesterday. True Story.


What actually happened was I got offered a bib number at a sold out 10 mile race that I'd like to run. A lot.

But, through the incredible will power that comes with being a MARATHONER I managed to say NO. And do you know WHY I said NO? Well, "because I made a goal to train for a 5K, and by golly, I made that goal for a reason".

OK. So that's HALF the truth.

The other half of the truth is that I did some quick math, didn't like the numbers, talked to the Witch Dr to get his take on it *note to self, do not ask a coke dealer his opinion about doing crack, for a few minutes there his eyes glazed over and he very clearly thought about doing the race himself, and ultimately he agreed that it would REALLY be tight on milage/time to train & that it might be too much too soon.

So I ran my 5K plan past him, and that made him super happy. (again, I think he's wondering if he can join team Run Like A Mother for the 10 miler in April) And guess what else? He released me from my weekly therapy! I'm going back in 2 weeks after my 10K, but he thinks I'm good to go! At this point I should only have to come back after that if I'm in pain!

YEAH! I've graduated and resisted crack all in ONE week!

Yay... I was seriously beginning to wonder why you would be offered "crack"... you do not look like a junkie. Way to grab my attention and to say No to temptation.


Hmm ... maybe I will offer the witch dr the "crack" today. But I am going to require that he wear a running skirt to get it ...

Yay for being released. And you, me, barrel thief - tonight 7:30!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and sharing about your brother. Your mom sounds like an awesome lady. Your brother was definitely lucky to have such a great advocate. My husband is a jr. high school administrator so we are very lucky to have a lot of tools to get my son the best education we can. He has grown by leaps and bounds since his diagnosis and we are very optimistic about his future. :)

Thanks again for stopping by and showing support. And great job resisting the "crack!" Tee hee.
