i'm not built for running
Sunday. 10.31.04 4:26 pm
there are three very good reason why i'm not built for running. 1) my foot, i've blogged about my foot a lot so i won't talk about this much. it hurts all the time and if i run on anything other than a smooth surface, i can't take it. 2) i have very sensitive skin so any mileage over 4 miles and chafing is an issue. 3) let's just say that i am a little big up top and leave it at that.
with these three things going against me, one might wonder why am i training for a half marathon. that's a good question. i often ask myself that somewhere around mile 4. i push myself much harder if i have a specific goal in mind. the half marathon was something that mike and i agree to this summer and i am paying the price now. before we started training i had never run over 4 miles in my life. we ran 8 miles today and i am wiped out. i can't imagine running 13 miles on race day. it took mike and i somewhere around an hour and a half to run the 8 miles today. our pace is pretty slow but i'm happy to not have walked at all.
so back to my three problems. who better to go to for advice than oprah. she has apparently run at least one marathon and did so with an incredible sports bra that allows for no movement. i figured if it worked for oprah i'd give it a shot. i also took some advice from carmen and got myself some body armorwhich helps with the cold and chafing. not much can be done for my foot so i just have to suck it up and run.
the marathon is coming up at the end of nov. carmen and ram are also running it so you all should come out and cheer us on.
when's the race?
