I hate Running

5 Oct

This week, registration opened for the Pittsburgh Marathon. I’ve run the Half-Marathon the past 2 years. I like half-marathons…challenging, yet not excessively long. But 26.2 MILES?! really? Who wants to do that?

Well, my friend Nick (who ran the full last year) texted me to let me know registration was open AND it was discounted that day only. A full marathon for only $75? what a deal?! But I HATE RUNNING! Unfortunately, Nick reminded me that a marathon is just the next mountain I have to climb in my never ending fitness endeavor. So, after asking Matt to sign up with me (to which he immediately and excitedly agreed …freak…) I decided I would sign up too.

So, I guess I’ll keep CrossFitting for now, and soon add a few runs. If I can finish in 5 hours or less, I’ll be happy!

BUT, we I have more important matters to attend to first….TOMORROW IS THE FALL FACE-FACE! Woop! Unfortunately, I woke up with an intense stabby pain in my back that is severely limiting my lifting abilities. So, leaving work early today to attend to that!

Wish me luck and check back Monday for an update on how the competition went!

    I ran my first marathon last November. I did train for it 100%, but it does take up A LOT of your time. I would do it again. The experience was so amazing! Good luck! You can do it!

    Wow! Huge goal, and it sounds like you have a pretty god attitude towards it – despite the whole not loving running thing ;-). xx

    I don't want to cut out crossfit to train for it 😦 That a big fear of mine…I'm hoping that since my goal is just to finish it, (around 5 hours?) that I can train and build up, but not worry too much about speed. Ugh…haha
