... til I shave this damn thing!!!
Not going to lie.... I'm kinda liking this beard thing. It's been keeping me warm on my long runs. Plus I can't stop touching the damn thing. It keeps me entertained. I'm constantly petting it, combing it and cleaning it. I have become one with it. I like the feel of it.
I did say that I would not shave it 'til after marathon day. That's my goal. But not sure it will last that long. I work in IT. Which doesn't necessarily mean I need to be clean cut, but I always like to make a good impression especially with new employees and with upper management. So mentally it's getting to me....
...... But my beard, I feel, has been giving me good luck throughout my training for Boston. Call me superstitious, whatever,.... its working, and I dont want to mess it up! I will not shave until after April 15th. That's what I keep telling myself... I hope I can make it that long.
I wanted to run the New Bedford Half marathon today, but when I went to sing up for it two weeks ago, it was already sold out. I was bumming. I ran it last year at it was a great course. I'm sad I missed out this year. Bill, (Impossible is Nothing), when I heard you weren't running it, the thought of taking your number crossed my mind..... But I didn't. I know... I'm horrible..... :(
EDIT: *** For the record... I would never do such a thing***
I instead ran a 16 miler today. The first 3 miles by myself. The next 6 miles with members of the running club, and the last 7 miles by myself. It was a tough run, but I'm glad I got them done.
Next Saturday is the Boston Rehearsal run. Where we will run from Hopkinton, MA to Boston College. 21 miles of the Boston course. I am sooo looking forward to it. Can't wait!
That's it for now. I will let you guys know how it goes on Saturday....
