Sing it with me …
Late last year, I decided I was going to run the Baltimore Marathon in October instead of Marine Corps 2011. I had such a great time at last year’s MCM and initially thought I would do it again, but changed my mind when Baltimore registration opened up in December. I signed up the day it opened!
I decided I wanted to focus on running different races, and figured I could always do Marine Corps again some other time.
But I kept the MCM registration date in my calendar.
And I still follow the race on Facebook and Twitter.
And I was seeing status updates and tweets when friends signed up.
And then there’s this 50K I’ve been thinking about on November 12. No, I wouldn’t *race* Marine Corps … I’d just use it as a training run!
Still, I successfully avoided registering on Wednesday when it opened.
Then this morning, a co-worker came into my office and declared he was going to run the marathon. He is not even a runner right now, but is getting himself some new shoes this weekend and is ready to start training!
And then I looked on the website and saw “90% Full” this morning.
And I saw the status updates and tweets counting down how few spots were open.
And this happened.
Oh yeah. I’ve lost my mind. But I may have found a theme song for my marathon training!
Who else is running?
