So I am starting this blog to track my progress, and possibly keep me accountable to a somewhat crazy goal I have set for myself in 2013. Yup, 13 – 13.1 mile races in 2013 I have decided to call it the “Lucky 13 Challenge” cleaver right? The question is… Can I do it? Honestly I am about 90% sure I can. I say 90% because there are some serious “x-factors” in my life that could throw a big monkey wrench in all this fabulous running action, silly stuff like, work, money, a fair amount of grief, my hyperactive, amazing, infuriating, awesome daughter and of course, my nemesis… gravity. Me and gravity go way, way back and I have always thought he was kind of a bastard, but when it comes to running he for sure my nemesis and I often find myself meeting his sidekick, the ground, with things other than my feet.
My other sort of side-challenge, if that is even a thing, is to track my running challenge via this blog. Generally, any kind of creative writing or written expression of feelings or personal business makes my skin crawl. I almost never use a computer outside of work, I am a horrible Facebook friend because it requires having feeling and typing them (yuck), and at best a lack-luster tweeter, thank god for the 128 character limit. So if nothing else, check back and see if I am capable of stepping out of my very happy little anti-social bubble and writing some stuff… Expect to see a lot of pictures, that gets me out of 1,000 words right? Well I think I have hit my talking about me limit for the day, ewwhh… I feel dirty now, I think I need to take a shower… PEACE!
