5 Days..

Actually...4 days 14 hours until I on the flight to Washington DC, my first stop before heading to Panama.
On my bed right now I have all the possible things I’m taking. I’ll have to started slimming down some stuff because I haven’t even put my running stuff in…which will be the bulk of my luggage =).

This morning I printed out my running schedule for the next 16 weeks. I plan on doing the Panama City Marathon August 9th. I think that having that goal, and a running schedule will help me cope with all the changes that are coming up. Having something to train for will keep me grounded and focused.


  1. So close! Are you going to run the full or half marathon?

    If I can get myself disciplined and start running some more, maybe I will race you! (the first mile)

  2. Your marathon debut is in 16 weeks! Yet another milestone event in your life. Talk about a bucket list! But if there's anyone up to the task, it's you, the fearless competitor! I'll be cheering for you and logging equally crazy miles this summer.

    BTW, I love the Michael Crichton quote above. He nailed it. And aren't we all searching for that true, inner self.
