Hopefully the next post you see from me is one of victory. I'm hoping that it will be something like this:
I'll try to post afterwards to let you know how I did! The main goal is to try to finish the whole thing without walking. I don't care how fast I do it in; I just want to jog the whole time.
Back to the marathon--I have to share something that I found funny/frustrating while I was registering for the race. You fill out all your personal data (age, sex) and then at the very end you could select two extra options if you "qualified":
I stared at this forever trying to figure out why they would include this, but then I realized that they are tracking their "heavy-weight" runners. First off, thank goodness they didn't name the female division after large animals or I think I would've had a bit of a cry. Second, since when is 140 lbs heavy? Now I know that runners (particularly those running marathons) are quite svelte, but you could be a very toned woman with average height and weigh 140 lbs. Anyway, I guess I will have to embrace the Athena title since I definitely qualify!
What are your thoughts on the Clydesdale/Athena divisions?
