...the marathon bug that is.
Yesterday I signed up for the Houston Chevron Marathon lottery (again, fingers crossed I get in!).
But I am an unabashed overachiever. I'll be the first to admit it. It takes me a while to gain the confidence to move forward with something, but when I do I'm all in, no ifs, ands or buts.
If you remember (or if you don't) I ran my first 5k in December 2010. HOWEVER the first 5k I signed up for was in January 2011. After I signed up for the EP5k in January, I didn't want to wait. Have I mentioned I'm pretty impatient? I am.
Fast forward 7 months.
I've come leaps and bounds with running. Is now a good time to mention that I started "training" for 5k's in 2009? I have a tendency to over-train because I get nervous. But once I take that leap.... Anyway, I digress.
As you may know, I started marathon training last week.
I signed up for the Houston Chevron marathon yesterday morning.
I have been stalking June 1 for weeks now waiting for 8am to roll around so I could sign up. Low and behold at 8am our Internet was out at our house.
So I did the next best thing and logged onto my phone. It wouldn't take my payment over my phone.
So I jumped into my car and high-tailed it to work and was registered by 8:45.
Talked to Britt.
Worked some more.
Talked to Britt some more.
Thought even harder.
And I signed up for the Rock 'n Roll SA marathon.
It's all or nothin' round here, baby.
