Go Shorty, It's your birthday...
... we're gonna party like it's your birthday! Yay, Happy Birthday to Me! I have a nice 3 mile run planned, followed by pilates, then I will probably go out afterwards.
When my mom called me this morning (of course she had to sing the birthday song), she asked me how it felt to be 26. I told her that it felt good and that this time next year I would be training for a marathon. She was amused. (So Doug, I think you're right... A half is only the beginning!)
Yesterday my roommate signed up to run the 5K that will be on the same day as my half marathon. Then I got her to agree to run a half with me in the spring! I knew she wouldn't stop at 5K like she originally planned! hehe. (And Amy, the roommate seems to be doing great now. I think the humidity might have had something to do with it, and everyone's allergies seem to be acting up as well.)
While I'm responding to comments (man, I love comments! Thanks guys!!!)... Thank you Tom! I can say that a few years ago I never would have thought that my mom paying for me to run 13.1 miles would have been the best gift. She's great! Ali, I am happy to be one of the "crazy runners"!!! And I greatly appreciate all the support and encouraging words for my swimming adventure! Your friend is doing an Ironman... that's so amazing! Marcy, I'm sure you could go the tri route... I mean you have the running and biking portions down! Tangie... you should sign up for swim lessons too! We can train together... er... sort of. At least keep each other motivated from a distance!
Note: I'm way behind on reading everyone's blogs. The past few days have been pretty busy, but I hope to catch up soon!
I hope everyone has as wonderful of a day as I plan to have!
