Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Awww.  I love you guys.  Despite the fact that its yet again been four freaking weeks since I checked in, no worries.  I'm not quite dead yet.  I feel fine!  I feel....HAPPY!  (Monty Python, you will never escape me).  Seriously, though, I really appreciated everyone's comments, emails, and facebook messages on my last gloomy gus post.  I know that everyone has days, weeks or months like this, and 99% of my issues were indeed first world problems, but still, it adds up.

After I finished penning that depressing post, I did what I do best - brushed off my pissiness, and got busy.  Greg and I planned out our 2017 race calendar (coming soon), which, for me, has both a spring and fall marathon, in two new states.  YESS.  It's also sprinkled with a few tris, a half marathon, and 3 5ks, one of which I am SUPER excited about and can't wait to tell you about - this week - not next month!

A marathon in 47 days??  ERMAHGERD!!!
My big leap for spring, though, is the Olathe Marathon, otherwise known as the Garmin Marathon in the land of Oz.  It's all Wizard of Oz themed, and the start line is literally 4 miles away from my cousins house, and 60 miles from my other two cousins, one of which is Biz's godmom.  Score.  Biz and I will travel to Kansas and MIssouri for a nice lng girls weekend and I cannot wait.

47 days till go time.  I have no illusions of PRing, not even trying.  we shall knock off state #6 and get a much needed reset.  And the best part?  I now have a training plan - and I'm not afraid to use it.  I'M BAAACCCCKKKK!!  


  1. Enjoy the marathon! Sounds like you need a costume :) I mean it is for fun so you should dress up.

    1. Im debating it!! I have a dorothy costume for Biz as the spectator, might dress up as Glinda or the Wicked Witch!!! :)
