... & then my knee heard about it & said, Oh no you didn't... & gave me attitude that put me in my place...
Well, that half marathon is this Saturday.
The race atmosphere is taking over.
Barriers are up all around downtown this morning. I'm seeing pictures of people getting their stuff together. Posts are all over facebook about it.
... & I'm ready to scream... or cry...
Originally, I was OK with having to back out of the race because I'm actually on vacation next week (YIPEE!!!)... & we had reservations to go to Gatlinburg... (fun)... BUT... yeah, life hates me lately. Ricky had his knee injury & had to take time off work & the result? We can't go to Gatlinburg because he has to work the first part of my vacation now. (BOOOOO!!!!!)
So now, I will be home Saturday & my husband will be at work. I'll be at the house all by myself. When there is a half marathon going on that I wanted to do.
I did sign up to volunteer at it. I'm supposed to be working at the finish line handing out medals. I mean, if there is anywhere to be, its at the finish line. I love finish line emotions.
But I haven't heard anything back from the organizers. No directions, nothing saying who to contact, where to go. Come on people, get with it. If I hear nothing, I wont even attempt going because I'm not going to ride around downtown roaming... & how awkward to just walk out to the finish line on my own & grab a hand full of medals... I don't want to get tackled by security.
|me waiting to hear SOMETHING|
But I've been having crazy thoughts... registering for the race myself.
Today is the last day to do it. I have until 6 tonight if I decide to do it.
Now, granted, I haven't gotten more then 3.10 miles in the past few months. But I have been working out P90x style... & my goal is just to walk it - not even try to run... but just enjoy the beautiful fall weather (its supposed to be perfection) & just inhale life...
... but I know I could really aggravate my body going into something not trained.
But it's walking...
I can do that - right?
Oh poop... I don't know what to do.
Just try & volunteer? Go for it? Or just stay at home with my coffee & knitting & watch for everyone's race pictures?
