The Check is in the Mail...

Holy moly.

I did it.

I registered both Eric and I for the Portland Marathon.

The check is in the mail and I'm in shock. I've been wanting to do this for a long, long time. I didn't ever think I'd sign up for a marathon. No more hedging, no more wondering.

I've been a wanna-be-marathoner and now I'm a marathoner-in-training.

I'm on my way!

I am with Rob. I send my checks and don't budge. It's all about right training now. Work, work, work.

Hey, I just want to say you're not alone!! I signed up a while back too and it already cleared my bank acct so this is it!
I'll be sure to look for you too. I'll tell you what my bib name is when the time gets closer. My 1st marathon quest too. :)

Ohhhh, I've had the same itch, but I haven't scratched it yet. GOOD for you!!! I really look forward to following your training, Michelle.

OMG ~ YOU SIGNED UP!!!! Yea!!!

Oh, by the way, I'm hopping on the plane to hang out w/you and Rob and the gang to enjoy some of your weather....(I wish!) Supersetting is going from one exercise to the next without a break. I went through all three exercises and then took a break....3 times. Does that make sense?
