My Birthday Present

I’m getting a lot of them this year.  First and most importantly, I get to wake up on my birthday (Jan 21) and there will be a new President.  Second, “Lost” starts that day.  I know there is something else significant happening too, but I can’t remember what it is (so it actually must not be that significant).  Anyway, I’ve also decided to run a 1/2 marathon…or two.  First, I’m going to do the Tacoma City Marathon in May.  It’s exactly 17 weeks from tomorrow…which is the length of the training program that I’m going to do.   I also discovered that the Rock and Roll marathon is coming to Seattle this year!  YAY!  So, I think I’ll do that one in June as well.  I’m going to sign up and pay for both of them on my birthday….sort of a present to myself — and an incentive to keep training.  I don’t particularly like running, but I am the sort of person who gives things 100% when she sets her mind to it.  I ran the Honolulu Marathon in 2002, so I know I can do it.  It just feels good to have a plan.  May will be here before we know it.
