B took this picture of me and Mr. Broome at her birthday party and I just adore it.
But that has nothing to do with this post.
I know all you people have read about on this darn blog the past week is, running, running, running, but I have one more thing to say.
One more, one more.
You can do it too. I mean it. Lots of friends have said, "Oh, I wish I could do it." "If I were faster or if I could run more than 3 miles I would do it."
Here is the thing. Anyone can. Believe me, if you saw some of the people out there running it you would be like "Really? Them?"
This is not to sound mean either, but I know the apprehension that comes with running that many miles in front of spectators. I always assumed that runners were of a certain body build and attained a higher level of physical fitness. These things are just not true. So long as you prepare, follow a training plan, and eat the right foods, you can do it too.
So who wants to run the next one with me?
I want volunteers! Everyone at this last race seemed to have a partner to chat with along the way, and Mrs. Broome here sure would have liked one too!
