I've had this blogger account forever, but (apparently) never posted anything...and since my other long neglected blog is exclusively about baking, I've decided to take this one up again. I'm not even publishing this one yet, because I'm not entirely sure what it will be about...running, working on my master's degree, and trying to have fun in general? We'll see! This would have been a lot more fun last year, when I traveled to 5 different countries and had an "awesome things to do in 2011" list. But alas...
Running...well, I've been accepted and have registered for the NYC marathon. I remember the very first time I watched the marathon. I was staying on the same block as the halfway point in Queens, just as the runners come out of Brooklyn. I just went down the street to get coffee and couldn't cross the street. I think I ended up standing out there for at least an hour, just yelling and cheering for people-I thought it was so cool! I said to my (at the time) boyfriend that I really wanted to run it...but umm, I think I could run two miles, tops! It wasn't until a few years later that I decided "I want to be a runner," made a $100 bet with a friend (please note, he never did pay my winnings), signed up for the Brooklyn half-marathon, and the rest is history (with various injuries thrown in). This is my year :)
Post Brooklyn Half 2011 (funnel cake and pina colada for recovery!)
Three hours post Brooklyn Half 2011
More to come, as I figure out how to entertain via blog posts!
