T minus 88 days.

Didn’t run home last night.  I had to stay late at work and got a phone call from TFMS saying she is picking me up because the weather outside is disgusting…what would I know, my office is in the middle of a factory.  When I got outside it was beautiful, crisp, clear, but dark.  I didn’t put much of a fight up in refusing a ride home, mainly because I didn’t get to leave work on time.

I have had my entry form for the Adelaide Marathon (88 days to go!) filled in and sitting on my desk since Monday.  Don’t know what is holding me back from faxing it in and committing, maybe because I don’t know if I have the mental toughness to do the training and complete the marathon yet, maybe I am just lazy, or maybe I don’t want to waste the money if I get injured.  Bugger it I will fax it now…

*edit – and done…gulp!*

  1. Are you financially committed now?? Good luck, no point delaying the inevitable- you will run it and you will become one of those amazing people called “marathoners”.

  2. how exciting!! You’re doing it now, no getting out of it. You’ll be fine – you’re a running machine lately 🙂 and now that you’re committed it might give you that extra boost with the mental battles …
