Why Alyssa and I are running another marathon
That is the question. Why would Alyssa and I do another marathon so soon after the Marathon from Hell?
There are some good reasons for us to do the Clearwater Marathon on Jan 19th. At least we think so.
REASON #1- FREE
We had a free race coming after the Halloween Halfathon in 2012 where we didn't receive medals until later in the mail. We received a sincere apology AND a complimentary race from the race director (unexpected and very kind) to any of their events, so we naturally chose a marathon.
REASON #2- HAS TO BE BETTER THAN THE LAST
This race can't possibly be worse than the Marathon from Hell.
REASON #3- PHYSICALLY, SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT
We're pretty trained up already.
REASON #4- COURSE WE CAN HANDLE
The course is mostly flat (and we believe them) with a few bridges and spectacular views.
REASON #5- A CHANCE TO CATCH UP
This is probably our last big race together for quite a while. We'll be staying together the whole time chatting, which I always love.
That about sums it up. Otherwise, yeah, we're insane and we know it.
|But most of all, we love each other like sisters!|
|It's really hard to see, but there's a woodpecker on the front of the tree near the top|
|Here you can see the woodpecker's silhouette. I love how this pic turned out.|
Ready to finish (the goal!) on Sunday.
