Holy Crap! I’m Blogging. And Training for a Marathon?

11 Oct

If I had a dollar for every time I said I was going to start a blog, I’d probably have enough to buy myself something pretty, like this pretty Anthropologie dress I’ve been oogling. I’ve always put blogging on my ‘to-do tomorrow’ list. It’s right next to ‘try yoga’ and ‘volunteer’ and ‘graduate from cooking 101.’

‘Train for and run a marathon’ is also another of those items on that list. This didn’t used to be on my list. I was perfectly content with just running around Lake Eola. But then four years ago my boyfriend Donnie talked me into a running a 5k. And I ran a few more 5k’s. Then two years ago my friend Tim talked me into running a half marathon. And I ran three half marathons. And then a random stranger on an elevator talked me into running a marathon. So here I am: training for my first marathon and blogging about it. It’s lovely to be here.

Running the 2010 ING Miami Half. I borrowed those shorts. I forgot mine.

      My first comment! I ❤ you JoJo!

      Donnie, Roxy and I are all training to run the Walt Disney Marathon… all 26.2 miles! It's January 8, 2012.

      If you run the Disney Princess Half, I'll make you a pink poster with lots of glitter.
