Me, at last years half marathon start line. Terrified, still not quite awake to know what was going on, and unsure of just about everything in the world. But look at my crazy drunk grin! No I wasn’t drunk – this was the face of a girl who wished this was the finish line. Don’t get me wrong. I love running. I love the half marathon distance. BUT with that said…. I hate waking up early in order to do these things. I need a half marathon that starts at 10:00am people.
This years race starts – like gun time – at 7:30am. Which means I need to be there by 7:00am. Which means I need to get up by 4:30 in the morning. On Saturday. This is still better than the Half in December, where we had to get up at 3:45am for a race that started at 8:00am because it was in Annapolis. I will no longer do that for races.
Except if it’s Disney. I will do that for Disney.
So yesterday I posted an afternoon Vlog detailing how I felt day 1 after NROLFW workout. I still feel great. I am sore, there is no getting around that, but I feel great nonetheless. I’m overdosing on water today so my muscles can repair themselves – along with protein, but part of me still feels “BLARG”. I am not sure what I did to my jaw but it really hurts. The left side is like kinked or something. I can close my mouth all of the way without pain – so my tongue is acting as a barrier, and if I open my mouth too wide – like to yawn- it hurts even more.
GOOGLE READER WILL CLOSE ON JULY 1 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because my world is over. I have so many blogs on there. Wahhhhhhhhh. I spent 45 minutes last night transferring all of my subscriptions to the Worpress Reader, and I hope that doesn’t go away because then I will just have to memorize everyone’s blog, or keep a spreadsheet on a thumbdrive of all of the addresses, and then I’ll lose that on the subway or something – because I’ll have it in my bag of tricks known as my purse, and then my life will really be over. So stayed tuned for the post of “I LOST ALL MY BLOGS.”
I’ve updated my NROLFW page with my preliminary measurements and before photos. I will not comment on the before photos, because they are hideous. My ass looks like I stuffed two basketballs in my pants, and not in a good way. That’s why I am here. That’s why I am doing this. I can do this. I can’t keep saying it’s too hard. It’s too difficult. OF COURSE IT’S HARD.
