How far is that marathon?

don't you just love that question?

anway

so

wow, in just a couple days I'll do this

yup, miles
not yards
not inches
not feet
and
not meters.

I was ready to tackle this distance in 2010 and then triathlon took over my life and it became something that I would do later on. I was completely content with waiting until I tackled 140.6 miles of triathlon awesomeness but since the opportunity seemed to present itself...why not.

Plus, I get to add another sticker to the car!

Happy Wednesday

I can not wait to hear all about your first marathon experience! Do you think you can love it as much as triathlons?

Good luck and yep, LOVE that question! Not really but I did find it humorous on some level when talking to a friend about the two marathons on my plate this year. We just finished talking about the Maui one when I mentioned the Honolulu one. They asked, oh, how long is that marathon. Answer: 26.2 miles. Their reply: oh....so it is the same distance? Yep! Go figure!

I love that question. The next questions is do you tell them they are all the same distance?

Good luck in your marathon.
