and now for something completely different

i've been mulling it over since monday night.
i had until midnight tonight to decide.
i couldn't sit on this fence for very long.
i kept checking the website. obsessively.
i filled out the registration form. then logged off.
then filled it out again. then i logged off again.
and then -
i logged on
filled out the form
entered my credit card number
and proceeded to stare at the "confirm order" button.
for a long time.
a really long time.
and then -
i just hit it.
confirmed. registered.
holy shit.
not sure what i have gotten myself into.
i don't know who i think i am.
really. not sure.
i might throw up
both at the fact that i actually registered -
and it could be a really viable option on race day. the throwing up.
it could be temporary insanity.
or it could just be that runner girl shakes things up a bit.
and tries something completely different.

I just did my first ever 5K, so any distance over 4 or so miles still seems like 100 to me. :-)

Well, the oppressively horrid Barkley Marathons were a couple of weeks ago.

It's too late in the delegate race to run for President.
