I am so excited this morning. I have been thinking about running a half-marathon in January, and I think I have arrived at a plan. We shall see. I do know that training for a half-marathon will keep me running through the challenging months ahead, which will help my sanity. I am heading into a heavy work time. Every three years I spend at least 6 months preparing for "The Big Event" of my job. Normally, I gain about 20 lbs. as I prepare for this event because I work so many hours, I skip meals and when I skip meals I gain weight at an alarming rate. If I am running 20 miles a week, I will HAVE to eat regularly. I will also HAVE to not work 3,000 hours a week.
I am looking forward to getting back to work this morning. So I better get to it.
Let's all stay sober today, OK?
