It's official. I just registered for the Kansas City Marathon. According to the confirmation email I just received, my bib number will be 411. Clearly, they understand that I have all the information everyone wants to know, so they just went ahead and bestowed that very appropriate bib number. Good for them for recognizing the obvious.
Now, back to the real world...
Holy crap. I just signed up for a freaking marathon. Am I insane? Not only am I planning on running 26.2 miles without being chased by a bear or a policeman, but I'm paying to do it?! Obviously, I'm mentally ill. Now that there's been an exchange of currency and they know my name and address, I must admit I'm a little apprehensive. Will I be ready? Will I hit the Wall? Will it hurt?
All I can do is my best. There is a lot of work to do between now and October. I'm glad I have the support of my loved ones, the guidance of a renowned running group, and a lighter body to carry me through. I can do this!
