One of my best friend's recently flew all the way to Chicago from LA to run the Chicago marathon- that's over 26miles! I woke up the morning of the race to watch him run through my neighborhood, and I have to admit watching the thousands of people- old, young, one-legged, pregnant, dressed in costumes, and so on...- made me feel really inadequate as far fitness goes. Now don't get me wrong, I'm pretty good at yoga, but my endurance in terrible. Absolutely terrible. So, in attempt to challenge myself with something new I have registered for my very first race. :) It's a 5K, 3.1miles. And thank God, there is chocolate, lots of it, at the finish line! LOL.
I want to send a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Eddie! I knew you could do it!! And a big thank you to him for his inspiration, and thank you to my friend Caroline, who has continued to encourage this running thing for years, despite my lack of "catching on". Wish me luck as I try to prepare for my very first race! Yikes!! :)
