You have to forget your last marathon before you try another. Your mind can't know what's coming.
- Frank Shorter
yep. you guessed it. i will attempt another marathon. i will be running on december 5th.
it's hard to believe i signed up for my next marathon on the same day i stuck a needle through my toenails to relieve the blisters underneath. don't worry, i'm not a bada$$. it really didn't hurt. i should have done it days ago but i was chicken. i was scared. i'm a weenie. but i did it. i did both.
i signed up for round two. i'm ready to meet the beast. i'm ready to try again.
this time will be drastically different. i don't know the weather conditions in texas. i don't have the route memorized. in fact, i haven't even really looked at the course map. this will be a much bigger event. there will be over double the runners. the marathon relay and half marathon are sold out and the full marathon is eighty percent full. roughly 20,000 people have signed up to run next weekend. i can't believe i'm one of them. i can't wait to feel the buzz before the start line. i can't wait to meet up with my friends and running comrades. i can't wait to cross the finish line.
**prayers are appreciated starting now. thank you.
