Training Week 2

today's run = 7.0 miles
last week's miles = 20
this week's miles = 20.5
next week's miles = 18
This week's thought: if marathon training isn't sexy, what IS sexy??
This is Kate O'Neill. She is an Olympic marathon runner. She finished third in the Chicago Marathon in 2007.
This is Gisele Bundchen. She is a Victoria's Secret model. A famous one.
I think I respect Kate more than Gisele. I think I'd rather have Kate's list of accomplishments instead of Gisele's money and fame. I think Kate is cooler. Is cooler sexier? Hmmm. I'd rather be Kate than Gisele. So maybe I'd rather be cooler than sexier. I can never be a Vic Secret model. I can be a marathon runner.
The ads have started pressuring people to get ready for 'bikini season'. The Resolutionists have begun to lose steam at the gym. I have run 60 miles in the last 3 weeks, and actually gained 3 pounds. I can't be in this to lose weight. I am just too darn hungry, and spend too much time planning the runs to worry about calories. So... sigh... I'm just running to run. Finish the 26.2.
There are 98 until April 30th.
