Marathon(s) WTF?Posted: February 22, 2011
I signed up for not one, but two marathons. WTF am I thinking? I registered for Carmel in June and Chicago in October. I am doing Chicago with a childhood friend. We have done a couple of triathlons back in the day and he wants to do a marathon. So I said that I would do it with him.
I tried to tell him the tricky part for fat people doing a marathon is that they kick you off the course if you fall below a certain rate, 4 mph. My friend told me that would not be an issue, blah, blah blah. You get where I am going with this. Today, a week after he registered and has been training on a treadmill, he is worried about finishing in the alloted time. I told him to relax and that we are still 33 weeks out. He just needs to keep training and walking. While training for my first marathon, I thought the exact same thing-I am not going to be able to finish this. I even thought that the night before the race.
Tomorrow Training – three miles.
I wonder if they will let me complete one of the marathons in a motorized scooter, like the one my ma-maw has?
