I did something bad this morning.
I paid off my credit card bill (!!) or at least within a few dollars. I was so excited to live debt-free and not make any major purchases for awhile.
Then, THIS HAPPENED.
If anyone knows who pulled out my credit card and made this ridiculous purchase, please inform me immediately so I can punish her.
Anyways, I knew the second I showed up at Big Sur 2011 that I’d be at Big Sur 2012, but thinking about the reality is pretty amazing. I have to reflect back to one year ago, when I’d decided in June that I was going to cross off my bucket-list “marathon” goal at a spring marathon in California, and I couldn’t do San Diego Rock & Roll (which for some reason I just assumed was the best first marathon to do or something…) so I looked for May and I saw there was one in Big Sur and I knew that was pretty close so sure! I made my mommy sign up for me the day that it went live and I wrote this post.
That post is amazing for me to go back and look at to see how much Big Sur meant to me. Sure, I’m living a life of running with running friends and I know dozens of people who run marathons so I kind of forgot how the distance seemed so untouchable. Going back and seeing how excited I was to sign up makes me know for sure that this event will always have a really soft spot in my heart/life and for that reason, I knew that if I was able to, I’d be back.
Looks like I’ll be back.
I still reread my marathon recap sometimes just to reminisce about what a fun time I had. I don’t know how many marathons I’ll run—I’m run/walking SFM in two weeks and then I think I want to spend some time just working on getting in better shape at all and increasing my speed and stamina as a runner. Maybe I’ll show up at a half somewhere if I can find one or at CIM or something but maybe I’ll just run and race and have fun. And then come December I can rally throw myself into Big Sur but all the while reminding myself that I run for fun.
This was a great happy Friday present for me
Have an AWESOME weekend, everybody!
