Marathon freak out...

Last week, I had this major "Oh my GOD I'm going to run a MARATHON?!" freak out moment! I had found a description of the Disney World course written by someone who had run it very many times. It was a great description! I almost felt like I was there with him, enduring every painful mile towards the end. After I finished reading the report, I thought, "Can I do this?!" Luckily, I have a friend named Crystal. She ran the WDW Full Marathon in 2009, the first time I had ever even SEEN a marathon in progress. Until that time, I thought only ultra fit super atheletes ran stuff like that! Boy was I wrong! People of all shapes and sizes were walking through the parks with medals around their necks that weekend! Watching that race is what gave me the "get up and go" to start running. I wanted to cry watching everyone run by us. They had worked so hard for so long and this was the end of their journey! We were standing right outside of Hollywood Studios which is where the 24 mile mark is. Everyone was cheering the runners on and encouraging them. It was really an awesome moment! So I became determined to run the Half in 2010. I did that, and now here I am in 2010, ready to start training for the 2011 WDW Full Marathon...with what? A broken foot! Ugh.

I asked Crystal if she could be my "Hey I'm freaking out can you tell me I can do it?" person and she agreed! LOL I will have plenty of time to train and I should get to start with my group, I'm just getting so antsy with this foot. I'm not doing anything I'm not supposed to but I'm going stir crazy! It's starting to feel better and I feel so BLAH from not running for TWO WEEKS (OMG!)! I'm so ready to go but I don't want to reinjure it. (Which is why I'm going to be a good girl and follow Doctor's orders!) I see the Doctor again on Thursday for another xray. I'm thinking by the following week, I should be good to go. It really is feeling so much better already! Hopefully this appointment goes well!

In the meantime, to occupy myself, I found a book last weekend at Books A Million!

It's an awesome book! I've only made it through the first 3 chapters. I'll let y'all know how I like it once I'm done!

Ok I'm off to get ready for a wedding! :0) Yay! Have a great weekend!!!
