I know, I know

I haven’t died.  Yet.  I’ve just been desperately trying to catch up on life since the long break! In answer to many of your questions (and to prove that I really am certifiably insane) I will be doing the whole blasted marathon.  My original plan was to shoot for the half since I am a new runner and really out of shape, however my nutso brother and friends are all about the whole “go big or go home” situation so – we’re going big! I am in my second week of training and I think I might die.  3 miles tomorrow…what is a short distance for some makes me feel like Rocky running the steps so I hope that I make it tomorrow. I almost died on the 1.5 today! Thank heavens for tunage on the ipod! Wish me luck!

You are crazy. But not for running the marathon. Just for listening to your brother and his crazy friends.

Are you running every day? I've heard that's not good for you - that you should alternate weights/gym/some other form of exercise, and running - especially if you're sort of starting over and all. Just be careful, and don't try to increase your distance too fast. I've learned from experience that that's not such a great idea :) You'll do great - just be careful

Love ya,
Aunt Carrie
