Call me crazzzy!!!!! I decided that I wanted to run another marathon (26.2 miles) this year. Why? I don't know. I have tried and tried to figure out why a person pays $60-$100, gets up at 4AM to be at the starting line by 7AM, and then runs their guts out for 26 miles.

Is it for the views (which were awesome) , the friends you make along the way, or for the fact that if you are going to run 26 miles why run it alone? I may never figure out exactly why I did it, but I do know that the feeling you get when you finally cross that finish line is amazing.
Maybe it's just the idea of setting a goal and accomplishing it. I am not an athelete and I don't know if I will be running any more marathons but it is a great feeling to say "I ran a marathon! Me, a 40 year old mom, I did it."


Here is a fun thing to try. (I got this from my sister Amber). It will only be fun if people play along.

Here is how you do it-

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember.

2. Re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.
