Thoughts on a Monday night

Have I mentioned that I'm running a half marathon in about 3 weeks? Did I also mention that my training schedule has been crazy? And that the most I've ran is 7.25 miles?

Can you here the panic in my voice?


Well, listen closer because I AM FREAKING OUT!

I'm running this race with three other people. My friend KC, and two of her friends. I've never met one of the girls. I'm going to make quite the first impression on my new friend, if she has to carry me on the airplane after we run.

In the effort to not embarrass myself, I'm declaring the next three weeks............
Well, I'm not for sure what I'm declaring the next three weeks. I just know I'll be running frequently, and I will probably have sore legs, and I will be using Icy Hot every night.

But on the upside, I have discovered a new drink at Starbucks. Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. Of course, I just Googled the wonderful drink and discovered the calorie count. This night just gets better, and better. *Sigh*

If you would excuse me, I'm going to go run and dream about Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate.

The standing joke around here is that I don't run unless a bear is chasing me. One time I told DH I was going to the gym and he asked if I was going to run. I said "there are no bears at the gym!"

I know you'll be able to do this as you are a runner. I could walk that far...I would be tired and cranky, but I could walk it.

Don't feel bad. I didn't wind up running my 5K Saturday. Then again, I'm not signed up for a half in three weeks :) What I'm trying to say is, you'll be fine!

Maybe you should run TO the starbucks and pick up a hot choco. At least you'll have incentive to go the distance!

In all seriousness though, I think you rock for doing that! I can barely run from the kitchen to the bathroom let alone a half marathon. Let us know how it goes!

I tried that drink the other day... Yummy! You can cut calories but halfing the pumps of syrup.... It tastes just as good!
