SGM #2

You may have noticed the counter in my margin clocking the days, hours, and minutes until I run the
St. George Marathon.
It's happening whether I'm ready or not...and I'm not. I don't care, though. This will be my second marathon and I'm running it to feel pride in the accomplishment of finishing. My sweet Brent and fun sis-in-law Andrea are running it with me. (To be more accurate, they are starting it with me but may decide to leave me in their more athletic, better trained, extra confident DUST!) My father-in-law is planning to run the last several miles.
I'm excited and can't wait (until it's OVER)!

Yayyyyy, you're going to run a marathon, yaayyy, I love marathons, you can bring my Pukachu cards with you when you go, yayyy (My Special Ed reference!). Anyway, that's so awesome, I'm so proud of you, take lots of pictures. It must feel great to be in such good shape. Drive safe, no tickets! Q

Hey, this is awesome, I still like to run up and down the basketball court but I could never imagine myself doing a marathon, it takes alot of work to train for one of those. Good luck, I will be waiting to hear all about it. You are my hero!!
