the run

I ran a half marathon! So did Glenn. We started training for it in February, I think. This is the only picture we took. Great huh? I wish someone had been there to take a picture of Glenn when he finished! We didn't run together.

Here is how it happened:

3:30 - Wake up.
3:45 - Eat cereal. Quickly.
4:00 - Drive to Tucson.
6:00 - Arrive in Tucson. Stomach eating itself due to nerves.
6:05 - Go to the bathroom. Yucky port a potty.
6:30 - Gun sounds (figuratively) and the run begins.
8:54 - Finish running! FINALLY! Glenn snaps a picture.
8:55 - Drink two bottles of water and eat a banana in one bite.

Anyway, it was exciting to do it, but I don't think I'll be running one again soon. Thirteen miles is too far. I have to idea how anyone can run a full marathon.
