deep breath


I did it. Today I registered for the Des Moines Marathon, my first. Given that I sort of bombed yesterday’s run and am in a total running slump (it is BORING to run more than 10 miles, folks), I feel a lot of hesitation. But, it’s done! Now I have no choice but to show up on October 17 and just. keep. running.

p.s. Did you know you can customize your race bib? It was a required field when I registered! I wish I would have known so I could have thought of something totally meaningful (a good Bible verse) or witty (I got nothing). Instead, I put one phrase I know I won’t be tired of when I see it in a few weeks: I love Brad.
