I think I might actually be bat shit crazy. paracaerouvoar wanted to be reminded of what it would feel like to finish the Big Bangs. I responded with "Also, you will feel elated when you finish your BB. The endorphins will be pumping, and you will completely forget how much pain and suffering you went through to get there. Then you'll eat ice cream. It will be glorious!"
Now, I'm sitting here thinking... wait, that's actually how I felt after I finished the half marathon this morning o.O Well, that, plus a lot of pain and a large quantity of wine.
I finished the Disney Princess half Marathon in 2 hours, 56 minutes, and 48 seconds. My goal was to finish under 3 hours, so I'm ecstatic. I also came in 7991 out of nearly 17,000 registrants. *Does a happy dance*
Unfortunately, I'm already thinking of the next race I should do. (The Nike Women's Marathon in San Fransisco awards Tiffany's necklaces at the end of the race, and they're handed out by Firemen in Tuxedos. It's also in the Fall, so there would be no winter training in crazy snow). One of our team members also coaches for Triathlons, which would be super cool, and I'm considering doing a full marathon in the distant future.
So, like my writing, I'm apparently addicted to things that are far too long for any sane person to consider.
Because I'm bat shit crazy.
I'll post the photos and an story about all of my training on Tuesday, as well as the progress from the big bangs.
I feel kind of high right now. :)
