Me vs. The Marathon

As today is the first day to sign up for the Chicago marathon, I popped out of bed this morning (ok so that is a lie…I snoozed twice) and then got out of bed, headed to my computer, and registered for my first marathon.  It is October 9th, 2011 and I plan to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  Energized for the big race 249 days away (and excited for my treat day), I headed to the gym for some running intervals and then to work early before the big storm.  As of now, I am snowed in to my parents house and looking forward to my first ‘adult’ snow day. I still can’t believe we are closed tomorrow, but enjoying a glass of wine and the treats I saved for my P’s.  Perhaps my mom and I will do some more baking tomorrow.  For my Chicago friends, be safe this “Snowpocolypse” and enjoy some time snowed in with family and friends!

  1. How exciting! Can’t wait to come watch your run! I just signed up for the Solider Field 10-miler. Never run that far before… so hopefully I’ll survive!
