I don't even know myself anymore.

I know, I know. I have always been moderately anti-race because I am really cheap and don't get paying to run in a giant pack of people. The Warrior Dash was an exception, because it was quite different from just 'going out for a 5k.'

But, I've found a half-marathon that might be for me. It's the Toronto women's half, and they've got water stations and CHOCOLATE STATIONS. I know that's slightly Cathy-cartoon, "Oh women can't control themselves around chocolate" stereotypical, might make running for 2 hours bearable.

I was on board with this idea until slogging through a terrible 14km yesterday, but I'm willing to write that off on the weather and try again next weekend to do a "long-ish" run.

I know some people love races because you set a goal and work towards it, so maybe I will try and think of it that way. Plus, it's not until May next year so it's more or less forever away.

  1. I would LOVE water and chocolate aid stations, as long as it's not warm to the point where the chocolate is melty. And I like your Cathy reference :) While it's awkward, I also enjoy Andy Samberg doing "Cathy" on Saturday Night Live. "Ack!"
