I have been doing a little running lately. On January 10 I ran 4 miles in 41:27 and today I ran 3 in 30:22. That’s a very respectable time for me. Of more significance is the fact that I had planned to go running, then I forgot about it and then when I saw that it was 5 o’clock I jumped up, pulled on the running clothes as fast as I could and ran out the door. It was in that moment that I felt like a real runner – like a person who actually goes for the run she thought about. That is, a runner with a commitment and not just a passing fancy. That’s a good place to be when you are gearing up to start marathon training.

    Ooooh, very exciting!! Those are some righteous times, too! You know how tantalized I get when you write about running! Cuz one day you’re going write “…so I finished the marathon yesterday….” !!!!

    Yes – that day will be July 31, 2006. I wonder if I could get there without doing the training??

    Not on your life (in answer to your comment). .. but it is very commendable that you were able to so easily transition from forgetful 5 o’clock day’s over mom to running goddess.
