|The most epic "sad" photo I could find.|
HOWEVER (If you're a fan of FRIENDS, you know that's a fancy "but"), I also have fun news.
I'm not sure how it all went down, but on Sunday Alyssa is running the Lower Potomac River Marathon and Kara is running the last six miles with her. And, spur of the minute, I decided to join them for the last six. Of course they both are still trying to get me to register for and run the entire marathon, but seeing how much pain I was in after my half, I can tell you that ain't happenin'. Plus, I get my six miles in, get to run with friends, AND I don't have to pay for it. BAM. BOOM. KAPOW!
And also, because apparently I'm feeling extra ballsy today, I just registered for the Hartford Half Marathon in October!
Kari and Alyssa are both running this race (except they're both very advanced and are doing the full marathon). I know I had decided before that I wasn't going to do it, but I'm making some... "financial changes" in order to justify what it's going to cost me in airfare and to register.
Not only does that mean I get to see Alyssa like three times this year, but I also get to see Kari and Bungee AND go to Connecticut AND see Kara, Faith, and Peanut! I think this totally gives us BFF status. Totally worth the cost, no question.
And, since I'm at work right now, I will share the other good news for tomorrow. Wee!
I leave you with something to ponder.
