1/2 marathon

Makes me think of T and her run tomorrow:

I'll keep running

Because it lets me be selfish.
It's the thing I do that's just for me,
and nobody else.

FYI, I never thought this being-selfish-thing
could take so much discipline.

(from an Asics ad)

This run raises money for blood cancer research and her team raised $83,000! I really admire T, who never thought she was a runner. She's run over 130 miles in the last couple months. Just 13.1 more to go...until next time. She is a Superhero, but as I'm being 'thrifty' these days I hope she handle something LYF style (T, a package should be arriving in a few days).

Mikey's running in the race as well. Sean and Jason have done marathons in the past couple months with more to come. What is it about getting older and running? Ha, on one hand I like the idea of getting into decent enough shape I could enter a road race again. On the other hand, maybe I'll leave all this running to others while I try new (and gentle) things like Nia. I still have not taken a class yet. No more exuses!

Good luck to Tina and Mike in their run tomorrow. Have fun! I hope Matt is taking pics at the finish line.
