I waffled back and forth for the past month--should I sign up for this half-marathon? Should I wait? Am I going to regret it? Am I going to have time to train? And most importantly: am I going to be able to eat chocolate while I'm training? During all this questioning and wondering, Scott was ever-supportive. He only said, "If you want to enter--go for it." He's very smart with things like that--he knows to be supportive, without specific directions on what I should do. On the other hand, if he is not excited a little bit, I'll wonder if I can really do it. What can I say? I have a tendency to over-analyze. Just a bit.
But tonight, I only had 2 hours left before registration went up $10.00. I'm too cheap to spend ten more dollars because I was slow to commit, so I finally did it. I'm going to run the Huntsville Half-Marathon, known as the "Half-Monte" in September. (The full marathon is the "Full Monte"...named for the beginning of the race: Monte Cristo, not the film). It's been YEARS since my last major race, and I feel like a beginner all over again. Well, run or jog, I'm going to cross that finish line. And that's the big news of my day. :-)
