This weekend is the Columbus 1/2 Marathon
that i was planning on running!
i had been preparing for the race
probably not as well as i should have - but still i know that i can run 13.1 miles
we decided to look at the map of the course
and thats when we noticed that the event was sold out!
I immediately was devastated about this news... how can a running event sell out?
...i totally understand the amount of medals/water pit stops/yada yada yada...
and i know that i could run it without registering - but i feel like that is kind of cheating the system and my integrity is on the line at that point - and its not worth it to me!
But during that moment of devastation- I also realized something else:
I was devastated because I couldn't run
[before I would be devastated to run!]
I'm no longer running because I am in a weight loss competition and I have a drive to win the $$
I am running for me now and I actually like it!
So now I will focus on the 1/2 marathon in May 2011 and I will be signing up this week!
Who's with me!
we have plenty of time to train!
