Sometimes I Just Want to Blog

Still no real blogging. I’m doing this on my lunch break at work.

I still haven’t connected my camera to my “new” computer, so that’s one thing that’s stalling me. The other is that I’ve been getting little to no wireless connection at the apartment I’m staying at. If I get it, it lasts for about 2 minutes then cuts and I can’t get it back up for the rest of the night. But, I’m back in my apartment next Monday (geez, that’s still a long time from now) so hopefully I can get things rolling then.

But, I just want to blog!! I have lots of pictures stored and good recipes and stuff to post. So, I’m going to do a super-short running update:

I’m training for a marathon. It’s true! The Marine Corps Marathon in D.C., the final weekend of October, to be exact. I actually made the decision to do this back in early March but decided to hold off the annoucement. Until today that is. I’ve been holding off cause I’m sooo superstitous and don’t want to jinx everything. It actually took a lot of guts to write this much in the first place! My sister can account to this. Everytime we talk and she asks me how training is, I start talking about it then cut myself off after about 5 seconds screaming “I don’t want to talk about it, I don’t want to jinx it!!!!”. I have to say though, it’s going well. And that’s all I’m going to say about it for now. Cause I don’t want another fiasco like with the half. And I’m wearing quite the knee brace to prove it.

But, I don’t want to talk about it!!! I don’t want to jinx it!!!

Until then, wish me luck.

    A full marathon?! Good luck!! I’m doing a half in mid-October. I can’t wait to hear training stories!

    I’m kind of the same way with not wanting to jinx things. Whenever people ask me about upcoming races I try to talk about it as little as possible.
