11 Days until I run my first Marathon. I thought about putting "attempt" but there's not really an option to fail in my mind, so I'm 'running' it.
I finally ordered my personalized race shirt yesterday and paid the extra for speedy shipping. This concludes that I'm an idiot. I registered for this race in January, commited to the training plan in June, and waited until 2 weeks before the marathon to order the shirt. Stupid move that I hope doesn't backfire.
Rest of the race-day outfit is ready and worst case scenario the new shirt sucks, I have a long-sleeve race shirt that I've been running in that I love. It's just not the cutest design ever. Whatever, I'm an idiot.
I just registered for the Big House, Big Heart 10K in Ann Arbor this Sunday. Just about everyone from my running group is doing it, so why not? This was my first race EVER - the one my sister made me register for two years ago, just to walk it. By walking 3.1 miles in 59 minutes, I wondered if I could run it in 30 minutes. And so my running career began at that point in October 2009. 5K PR sub 30 and I'm now going to run my first marathon in 11 days - funny how things happen like that.
I'm excited and anxious and just ready to get out there and log some miles!
