Let The Games Begin

At least I'll look good as I struggle?

At least I’ll look good as I struggle?

Tomorrow marks the first official run of my marathon training schedule and in the spirit of trying to find creative ways to motivate myself I went out and bought some new Nike swag for my adventure.  At least this way when the authorities find me passed out in some ditch they’re going to look at my gear and know I mean business.

Why I had the first two days of the program off is anybody’s guess — like I said before, my sources weren’t all that at all scientific — but with tomorrow’s run the realization of two things is gradually setting in:

1) I actually signed up for this marathon and am planning on running it (running used loosely).

2) ME, of all people, actually paid money to go run…and then went bought stuff specifically made JUST FOR running; who even knew such things existed?

I’ll likely be posting more frequent and concise updates of the process on my Twitter account so if you would like to track my pain and suffering in almost real-time I suggest you give me a follow, you know, if you’re in to that sort of thing.  And I can’t imagine there are many of you who WOULDN’T enjoy tracking my pain and suffering so I expect to see a large jump in Twitter followers in the near future.

Am I right or am I right?
