Certifiable

In two weeks I will be heading out to Arizona to see my friend, Kelli.  I originally planned the trip to get a few days of warmer weather.  The visit took on on a mission and morphed into the possibility of running a 5K or 10K.   With the help of a little bit of wine, our mission turned into an adventure and we are now running a half marathon during my vacation.   It makes perfect sense for a person who has been running a whole week and can now run 2.2528 miles in a row without stopping to conquer the 13.1.  Not to mention, it is an awesome way to kick off marathon training for Grandma's Marathon in June.
 
Shall I recap that last paragraph in case you missed the insanity?
Vacation....what a nice break in winter and a few days of RnR.
Race....hahaha, I am barely running.
5K or 10K....please, I  can't even run 3 miles yet
Wine....Uh Oh.  Someone must put a lock on my liquor cabinet as this always gets me into trouble
Half Marathon.....WTF, WTF, WTF!!!!!!!!
MARATHON.....uhhhhh, well,  uhhhhh  peer pressure. Extreme peer pressure!
 

Yes, I do realize how ridiculous that sounds.  Yes, I do realize what I am in for.  What can I say....I am nuts.

I was going to keep the marathon a secret but I don't do well holding anything back.  After the Twin Cities Marathon failure in October I told myself no more.  I was done.  Then the next day....yes, the very next day I was taunted and badgered by Bobbi and Kelli.  I thought long and hard about it (5 minutes) and signed up.  I knew that if I saw those two broads cross the finish line, I would be very sad sitting on the side lines.  I caved to peer pressure.  Here I go again on the insane train to marathonville....this time I will finish.

You crack me up! My sentiments exactly! I'm signed up for a half marathon in May and although I run easily 20km a week, I am soooo not ready to run a half! But wine could deinitely improve my attitude! Good Luck and enjoy AZ!
