Sign one that my life has changed this past year: I have become obsessed with the NYC Marathon.
I have always considered the NYC marathon the ultimate test. I could never even fathom finishing it. Obviously it's possible. People do it every year. And then I just thought they were crazy. Who would want to run 26.2 miles? Well there were about 47,000 this year.
I used to love walking the streets of NYC...of course I would stop and sit if I got tired. I'm sure I've had days where I walked 10 miles or so (anything to save money), but that was throughout the day. 26.2 miles in one day?
I love how many former Biggest Losers competed this year. After all, they were once in my shoes. That makes me think that I can do it...someday. I know...I know...first I have to get through the Rehoboth Half next month. But, I want this to be my first of many. In fact I've been trying to figure out which one to do after this. :-)
I'm not sure how long it would take me to train for a full marathon. I would probably have to quit my job and just start walking. It would be helpful if I had a Sugar daddy that would let me do that. HaHa. Or at least move somewhere warmer that would allow me to train outside year round...
I have been planning a trip for my 40th birthday in a couple of years. There will be a girls trip to swim with the Dolphins in Key West...but maybe I should aim for the NYC Marathon on my half birthday...something to think about.
Did I really just tell you that?
Of course I'm going to need new sneakers for that...and maybe new knees...
