This summer in Amer.ica has been wonderful. I'm getting enough sleep, speaking my own language, and gorging on diet coke. It's good goal-making time since I feel like I'm in a saner state of mind here than in everyday crazy/unpredictable/illogical Chi.na.
Well, these 8 hours of nightly sleep in an air conditioned home have caught up to me and made me do crazy things...
I just signed up (mentally - website's down, no surprise, though - c'est la Chi.na), for THIS:
Day one of training starts tomorrow - I'll post my calendar of training and excitement and joy once I figure out how to make a calendar to post online.
The plan is to be there toeing the line on November 14th for my 6th half marathon - first one in 2 years.
Big Sur International 21 Miler - April, 2008
I figure...why not? Right? It's in Hangzhou so there's no excuse not to do it. It's the best time to make a decision like this; when I'm rested, content, and my belly's full of momma's cookin'. Six weeks into training I'll be kicking myself, these days of comfort a distant memory...but no turning back.
Hangzhou Half Marathon - I'll be seein' you in 14 weeks.
Hope you're ready for a big redhead.
Walk slow. xoxo.
