It's official. I have made a mistake. I know, hard to believe, but it is true. Well, maybe not, I guess. What am I talking about? I am officially registered for the Mount Lemmon half marathon! I had the option to register for the full marathon, but decided to roll with the half, due to my goal race (Ironman Arizona) being about a month after this ridiculous race. Why was it a mistake? It actually shouldn't be. It is going to be a tough race, but I'm planning on doing it with pretty much no goal in mind.
Last night, I made my way down to one of the local Roadrunner Sports shoe stores and signed my life away. The waiver had a lot of mumbo-jumbo on it about seizure, coma, death, blah blah blah. I just signed it grabbed my free Muscle Milk shake and high-tailed it out of there before I could change my mind! Alright, so there was no such waiver. It was merely just a typical sign-up, same as any other race would be. But there most certainly was free Muscle Milk!
|This is what they gave me, except I asked for vanilla.|
I'm actually still pretty excited for this race. The timing may not be perfect, since I'll have to hold back quite a bit to make sure that I don't ruin my Ironman race, but it's still going to be a lot of fun. It will be the first half marathon that I'm participating in that isn't a "mainstream" race (Rock 'n' Roll, Disney, etc.). I'm secretly hoping that the spectators will be somewhat like what is depicted in this video:
So if you happen to be near Mount Lemmon in late October, get all dressed up like a crazy person and come cheer us on!
As for 311 month, it's almost over, sadly. I leave you with one last video:
