1. I'm nervous about my race (CROSSROADS 17.75K) this weekend, and at the same time, I'm not nervous enough. Hmmm. What does it all mean? I don't know, probably it means I should make a plan to not go out too fast, and then stick to the plan. I'm excited to meet fellow Blogger MCM Mom. Anyone in the NoVA/DC/MD area who wants to join us... I don't think the race is full. Hint Hint. AND Speaking of races, if I hosted a "Half way through summer virtual Half Marathon & Half 10K (aka 5K)", would anyone be interested in participating? Or, is mid July just too crazy HOT for people? I've been thinking about it for a while now and thought it would be fun. I'm looking at the weekend of July 10/11/12. Weigh in and let me know. I can't promise any kind of exciting prizes, but I'm sure to come up with something silly.
2. My middle child B is sick. Yea, I feel like the dumbest mom alive. On Monday, my kid who rarely naps any more took a 3 hour nap, and I didn't catch on. Duh. I guess SOMEONE had to be the dumbest mom alive this week. Glad I could spare the rest of you.
3. I have MARATHON FEVER... and watch out - I think it's contagious. I've moved to the intermediate Marathon Training Team - SNOT (GREEN). It was a smart move, but I already miss SpeeDee. Yes, there is something wrong with me, it's been 23 1/2 hours and I already miss her. Anyhoo, I am SO excited about the prospect of running and training for the next 25 weeks or so. I keep looking at the plan, and looking at my history, and making tentative goals, and then backing off the goals, and then upping the goals.... I know that some of this excitement will wear off as time goes on & the training gets tedious, but, right now I'm trying to enjoy the feeling. There's something so empowering about the following sentence,
"I'm not going to drink a milk shake from Arby's, Dude! I'm marathon training."
For many reasons, one being that it makes me superior to the milk shake drinker. Later this month that same sentence will be "Dude, of course I'm getting a milk shake, I'm marathon training and can eat what ever I want". Oh you people thought I was going to share the goals? Crazy heads, I'm saving that for much muuuuuch later.
