Yesterday I took my girls to the zoo. For the last time. But I'm trying not to think about only having one week left with them.
After the bad experience I had with the Groupon salon, my hair has looked horribly brassy and gold. Then I went and cut off 7".
So I told her I wanted blonde highlights. And I asked her to even up my hair, where I may have missed some places.
Well, I came home with brown hair. No highlights to be found. At least she removed the brassiness. Oh, and I look like a mushroom now. I give up.
Tomorrow is the Horse Capital half and marathon.
About a month ago I bought a bib from someone who got injured, so wasn't able to run. I just assumed it was for the half.
Well, a couple days ago I finally looked at the email she sent me and it said marathon.
Imagine my shock!!
So, now I'm debating doing the full, because I don't want to pay to switch it. Honestly, I know I can do it. It won't be pretty, but I know can cross the finish line before the 6:15 cutoff.
Even though I'm confident of that, I'm still worried. My last full was in December. My longest distance since then has been lots of half's, but no longer than that.
I am not trained for a full. What if I crash and burn at mile 18. Maybe I'm not so confident after all...
Everyone says this distance is nothing to play with, and I know that.
It's such a mental game, I have to go into it knowing I can run the full. I can't give myself the out of turning off at the halfway point. I have to get my head into it, if this is what I decide.
I want to do it.
I don't know why. After my last one I said none in 2016, if ever. But suddenly, I want to do this. It's crazy, and scary and spontaneous. Everything that I love.
Feel free to give me your opinions...
Have a wonderful weekend!
