I'll tell you a secret.. my birthday is coming up! My mom got me an early birthday present.
After a really hard start to the week, it's nice that things are starting to calm down. I'm just still praising God for what happened. I feel a little behind in the week, because we kind of lost an entire two days, but of course we're so happy with the happy ending and that life can go on.
Also. I signed up for the Chicago Marathon yesterday. Omygoodness. I signed up pretty late at night and then woke up this morning with this feeling of.. "WHAT did I just do last night?" Oh yeah.. just signed up for my first marathon. Hitting the "submit" button was actually pretty scary. I'm committed now.
One of my goals for 2012 is to run a 1:50 half marathon. Coincidently, if I submit a half marathon time of 1:50:59 or below, I can qualify for the D corral of the Chicago Marathon (instead of having to weave through everyone in the open race). I just have to submit the time before August or before it fills up. Hmm. So now I have all new motivation to run a 1:50.
Good thing I have super comfy shoes for after all those long runs that are coming up.
