Valley of Fire....Here I come!!!!!!
Yes, I am absolutely and completely officially INSAINE!!! I am going to be doing the Valley of Fire Marathon in 10 weeks. Yes folks, all 26.2 miles of it. I have been training for about a year now, and I am finally where I need to be. This is it!!!
I have run two marathons in the past, but those were before I had kids and my body was quite different. It has been a long journey this time to get to where I need to be. Much harder I must say.
The marathon is in Vegas, so it will be a 12 hour drive to and from. Total of 24 hrs in the car. Lots of time to think about the crazy decision I made before the marathon, and lots of time to sit and cramp up after running the marathon. ;)
Anyway, I am going to begin the long runs this week. Wish me luck! And uh, if anyone wants to do this with me...I would love you FOREVER!!! Common, you can do it! You get gatorade and a cool shirt ;)
