I Have a Co-Author

Introducing my very own little sister, Rachel (I call her Ray). She'll be writing this blog with me (editing my spelling and grammar, I hope, as I will be hers) and chronicling our craziness as we get our bodies in shape to run the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) in 2013. This is if we get registered...

So, I was totally obsessing about the marathon again last night at like 10:30, when I was trying to fall asleep from waking up at the crack of dawn to run. Well, instead of reading or doing something that would calm me down and make me sleepy, I decided to read about the MCM and I got totally pumped about every little detail regarding the race. One of which includes the fact that registration fills up almost immediately after it is available to the public (2 hours and some odd minutes for this year's race). This fact made me nervous and got the wheels turning.

Apparently, if a person finishes the 17.75K in March, they are guaranteed a slot in MCM 2013. This might be a good way for Rachel and I to get into shape for the marathon and test our running skills on a big race. I kind of wish it was a half-marathon because that's what I planned to run in the spring. But if this will guarantee a spot in the race in October, I'm going to do this race instead.

Anyway, I didn't go to bed last night until almost midnight because I was getting Rachel set up with her user name on the blog and talking non-stop about the details of the marathon (I'm also reading a book about how to run a 4 hour marathon). I guess tonight will be my early night to go to bed because I have another run tomorrow.

And PS: I might change the name of this blog to be more sister-themed.


  1. It is a 17.75K becuase thats the birth year of the marine corps: 1775.

    (It was born at a place called Tun Tavern somewhere in Philidelphia:)

  2. And that's why I'm running this with a Marine.
