Chapter 2 page 307 - get it over with already

I signed up for my upcoming half marathon, The Geist, back in October.  It's been looming over my head for 8 months - that's a long time to be thinking about it - having life revolve around it - and I'm now just READY to get it over with!!  Don't get me wrong, I'm super excited about it.  Because of it's hills, it will surely be the MOST challenging course I've ever done.  I'm so excited to be doing it with "C" and having "L" come along to be our cheerleader!!! I'm also looking forward to meeting 2 bloggers (Kelly from Thisisahorribleidea; and Lisa from TrainwithLisa).  And as if all of that wasn't enough to look forward to, "C's" sister, "R" is going to be doing this race - I.CAN'T.WAIT.TO.MEET.HER!!!!  Serious, "C's" sister - how FUN will that be?!?!?!  Despite all the things to look forward to, I'm just ready to get this race done so I can be focusing on the fall halfs.

T minus 11 days until The Geist.

Do you ever get this way - antsy might be a way of describing it?  Having a race "looming" on your radar too long?


  1. I know what you mean, in my last race I got to the point where I was like let's Just Do This Already!!!!

  2. It's been eight months since you signed up? Dang! That is some dedication right there. I hope you have a seriously fabulous time and enjoy the race.

    P.S. You are not pathetic at all. Training for a half-marathon makes that impossible. You are a role model!

  3. I think I would feel the same way with 8 months to wait! Yowza.

    Can't wait for your recap and take lots of pics!

  4. Wow. Your motivation is amazing!

    Good LUCK!!

  5. You are going to have an awesome race!

    If I've got a race on the horizon for too long, I tend to get burned out with training before the race. A month before the Portland Half last year, I couldn't wait for the race to be over with.
