North Olympic Discovery Marathon in June, and I'm so excited I may fall out of my chair. I've never run in an event longer than 5k, so this is a big step up, but I begin running regularly last year, and in spite of a ridiculous assortment of injuries, none of which were running-related, I've stretched my mileage out quite a bit. I ran from my house up to Twin Spits in Hansville last Friday, which is eleven miles with a lot of hills, and I felt great the next day. I'm up to about fifteen miles on flatter terrain, so I think this is doable, especially if I start to focus now. So I probably shouldn't be having wine and a cheese stick for dinner, but oh well. Tomorrow I'll begin living a more wholesome life.
Hopefully in three months I'll glide across the finish line, looking just as fresh and cheerful as the girl in the picture! And doing that cool hula thing with my hands.
