So, last January Andrew and I could barely run a mile. And now.... drum roll please, we are officially signed up for our first half marathon in Atlanta!
Whoot. Go team.
We'll actually be in Atlanta as we usually are for Thanksgiving break, and this time around we'll be earning our Turkey dinners, as we have 2 that we attend.
Below is our course map, and it is seriously stressing me out as I'm only at 9 miles, but we've got almost 2 months until race day. My biggest concern is the hills in Atlanta. The biggest hill in Houston is the steps up to my front door. (no, seriously)
Anyway, aside from all of that, our entire lives revolve around running now, which is more brain power than I've ever exerted in my entire life to anything sports related. For that matter, it's more brain power than Andrew or I combined have ever exerted towards any sports event. We plan our meals around running, our social life around running .... the people at the gym even recognize us when we come in...
On the bright side, I think I have leg muscles now! And Andrew's looking very buff! Go band nerds!
So here's the course... (deep breaths, deep breaths)
