i JUST registered for the chicago marathon. JUST REGISTERED.
THEN, i get an email from nike with information about sign-ups for the nike women’s san francisco half/full marathon on october 17th.
the week AFTER chicago.
i ran san fran last year, (the half that is) and swore (literally) that it was the hardest race i have ever done. maybe one on the most physically difficult things i have ever done. i think it even surpases the full marathon. or giving birth. or getting hit by a beer truck.
so why NOT do it again?
however, i am sure, no, confident jasen will find it difficult to get 2 sundays off in a row.
but…this is MY everest.
hard. challenging. taxing.
it is a random lottery again, so it is HIGHLY likely i will not be able to even run this year.
i have had my doubts. but then i saw this picture.
and i was inspired.
