It's not so much that blogging is my favorite way to spend leisure time. Leisure time is easy to fill with lots of grand, entertaining adventures and/or trips to the bathtub with a book. Rather, blogging is my favorite way to spend time I should be spending on other, more productive activities. Like working.
It was only a matter of time before Mary or Kinzy ratted me out. After all, blogging about a thing means it's real. Now I'm truly bound to the idea of lumbering my way through a half marathon. (Reminds me of that quote from the Grandpa on Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: "And the big brown bear came lolloping over the mountain"- partially because 'lollop' is a brilliant descriptive word for me in a hurry, and partially because I haven't shaved my legs in a long time-- bearlike.) Anyway, bad ankles, horrid form, and documented history of failure at all things athletic aside, I intend to conquer 13 miles with two stylish ladies on either side.
July 19, 2008's the big day.
For a good laugh, come stand at the finish line. I'll be there...eventually.
