Onward Bound

Sometimes life is tough. Sometimes life is awesome. Sometimes it a little bit of both. Either way, you have to keep going. I'll be running, laughing, crying and sharing it all here.

    Marathon runners in the news...

    By default I'm a news junkie. Hello, I used to be a reporter! So when I found this article, I was so excited to blog it. You see, secretly, I'd love to have one of those uber popular news blog sites where I could rehash my journalism side for millions of daily readers. Not gonna happen.

    But in other news, I do love my little niche in the world of marathon blogs, so have at it. Happy Monday.

    cool!!! i totally watch my odometer in my car all the time, to be like hmmm... if i ran from my house to my friends house...how far. or my place to work...how far... but then i found out just how far 26.2 miles is, and i kinda freaked.
    either way, cool article!

    I know what you mean. One time, when I first started running distances, I was SOOO proud of myself because I ran 5 miles. I'm talking super proud here. Then, I clocked it in my car to make sure it was 5 miles and from there, I drove out to Raymore to visit my grandmother. Holy cow, even WITH my 5 miles, it wasn't even 26.2 to Raymore.

    That's when I, like you, freaked. I never did that again.

    I think that's another thing about running my marathon in KC that's kind of overwhelming because I would never WALK from downtown to Swope Park, but yet, I'm going to run there and back? Crazy.
