Not So Long!

Ut Oh! I received my TNT Singlet today, and it isn't so long. I was so hoping that it was going to be long enough to cover my wobbling cellulite and jiggling thighs if I ran in my spandex shorts. Nancy burst my bubble a few weeks ago by pointing out that it is going to be too hot to wear my much loved running pants. But, I was holding on to a thread of hope that the singlet was going to be long. Like down to my knees long. Like little kid wearing their parent's shirt long. Like cover my butt long. Ugh!

Today was Mentor training day, and it got me pretty excited for the next season. I'm really looking forward to tackling the training for the full marathon and helping others to reach their fundraising and training goals, as well. And I've already meet the honored hero, as he knows Matthew and was at the last team social. I'm excited to get to know him and his family better. As it turns out his mom grew up in the same town as my parents and even graduated from the same high school as them. Small world!

Twelve days and counting. I'm getting so excited. 35,000 people running this thing. Wow! I can't quite wrap my mind around that. And I really can't wrap my mind around the fact that I am probably going to be exposing my jiggles to them, along with a jillion spectators, with cameras, none the less. Boy oh boy. Is there time to lose 20 lbs between now and then?!? Fundraising: $25 donated - Thanks Bill!

  1. Hellooooooooooooooo, it's me the bubble burster!! Seriously, I just can't picture an ounce of flab on you at all! It must be all in your mind!!

    We are so proud of you...can you believe how far you've come?? 13.1 miles is amazing!!

    Your grand total is amazing too! You have given so much to L&LS. Matthew and others like him will all benefit somehow by your effort!

    Thank you and we hope to be cheering you on (imaginary flab and all) at the finish line!!
