Well, I remember Mel Gibson accurately, and he didn't say that.*

I have 16 days until the half marathon.

Sadly - I feel certain that I am not going to survive this one.

I don't know why I signed up to run another half marathon.  There are people who wear shirts to these races that say, "This seemed like a good idea six months ago".  I feel like I should get a shirt that says, "This NEVER seemed like a good idea."

I don't even know why I run, to be honest with you.  I guess it's the feeling I have when I am done - it certainly isn't the feeling before or during.  And I find running more enjoyable than a workout video or going to a gym. 

Well - I know why I run races and that's for the food, shirts, and the stickers (and in this case the medals and bibs as well).  I just hope that on November 10th, when a Kenyan running the marathon crosses the finish line before me, I remember that I run for the medal and the food, the shirt on my back, the bib on my chest and the sticker on my car.
