I must be CRAZY. And I can’t wait to have a deep dish pizza.

19 Feb

I have undoubtedly lost my mind. However, it seems like the passing of nine months has allowed for me to forget the hell that was Marathon #1 and Marathon #2 and my stance of “only running half marathons for the rest of my life.”

Come this October, I will hopefully be celebrating the completion of Marathon #3 with a deep dish pizza, a chicago-style hotdog, or all of the above. If I’m really lucky, I’ll be sitting next to Oprah.

If you haven’t guessed it, I’ll be running the Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 13th.


Look out hot, steamy, muggy Florida summer training runs… here I come!

      Ha! Well work on that 9-month marathon you’ve got growing in your belly and then you can start planning running marathons afterwards. 😉

    Oh how exciting – good luck! I’m running the Chicago half the month before…I think deep dish pizza will be the best possible fuel!

      Ha! Yes, lots of carbs. But I will save that cheese for a post-marathon treat. My tummy will thank me.

      Is this your first half? I hear it’s a good one to start with. Good luck!!

    I love Chicago and deep dish pizza! Good luck training for the marathon. Super inspiring!

      Thanks Grace! I really like deep dish pizza, but never ever order it because of all the carbs and calories. Surely after running 26.2 miles, I should deserve such a treat, right? 🙂
