Tomorrow morning I will be getting up at an ungodly hour, a time which is just wrong to have to wake oneself up on a weekend morning, to go walk 13.1 miles.  And I'm doing this voluntarily.  No one is forcing me to do this, no one has made me do it.  No, I did this on my own free will.  In fact, I paid a great amount of money to participate in this ritual. 

What is wrong with me?

Maybe I was dropped on my head as a child.  Or exposed to some sort of radiation that prevents me from making sound, rational decisions. 

And the even more sick and twisted thing?  T is doing it, too.  And we've been getting up every Saturday since January to train for this thing.  Getting up at 7:00 a.m., no less.  Sacrificing sacred sleeping time. 

I should talk to my doctor about this.

And now it's looking like the 3 hours I have dedicated myself to walking Saturday morning will either 1) be completely in the rain or 2) partially in the rain.  None of these options is making me too pleased.  Walking in wet shoes, an activity I did just a month ago when I walked the 15k, is not something I wish to relieve.  But if I'm going to do this, I'm following through.  But I am seriously considering doing an "anti-rain" dance this evening in hopes that the weather man is drastically wrong. 

But I will be crossing that finish line.  And then I'm taking myself straight to the psychiatrist.



  1. Good luck!!!
    You can do it!!!
    I will be doing an "anti-rain" dance for you too!

  2. Yikes. I agree, you have lost your mind. Speaking as someone who gets no sleep but constantly yearns for it, this sounds nuts. I will hope you get no rain & that you feel really accomplished in the end. : )

  3. You set a goal, and you will accomplish it! Good luck tomorrow!

  4. I'm so super proud of you and I know you are going to love it! Please, please, please text me afterwards! I'm so excited for you-- Nain, this is AMAZING!@

  5. Ha! I wake up at 3 am on Saturdays because I have to be at work By 4 am. I feel ya. Even for work it's really hard!!! Keep it up, I wish I had that kind of will power!

  6. Good luck lady! I am so not a happy girl that early in the morning! ;)

  7. YOU CAN DO IT!! Or I'm sure at this point ... YOU DID IT!!

    I did a 5k today and that about killed me! Congrats on the 15k!!

  8. You are insane, but you're accomplished a goal and that is awesome! You should be so proud of yourself for sticking to this, finishing hard -and even running the end! I doubt I will ever experience this, but you are amazing!
