We Are, After All, A Blog About Running (Among Other Things)

I've been running again. As I should be! I'm only up to 3 miles right now, but I'm building. I just added intervals back in last week, and I've been increasing my speed a bit at a time.

So what am I running for? I did it. I bit the bullet. I nutted up. *Cue drum roll here* I registered for a FULL MARATHON!!!

It's on October 1st, and is right here where I live - the first annual Bend marathon!!! I'm excited, and freaked out, and nervous, and doubtful, and slightly nauseous when I think about it.

To keep myself on track, I also registered for a half on July 9th - the Smith Rock Sunrise Summer Classic. I haven't come up with a training schedule yet, but that's on my agenda for this evening.

So, what do you think? Have I completely lost it, or what?!


  1. Nice! I looked at that race a few months ago -- hell of a course for your first full (if it is your first), but it should be magnificently beautiful. Have fun and good luck with the training!

  2. That's great!! Good luck with everything.

    I think running for 26.2 miles is ridiculous... 13.1 is plenty for me! ;-)

  3. Good luck! I'm in Oregon too, Willamette Valley :)
