She’s Like the Little Engine that Could

I’m gonna make it, gonna make it, gonna make it. Up a 6.2 mile hill. With these people. Be concerned.

I’m leaving in a couple hours with Eric to drive to Rachel Nevada, to run the E.T. Midnight Half Marathon. Yes, I know it’s only a half. But…apparently there is a large, as in 6.2 mile hill. And last year the winning time for the MEN, was an hour and 42 minutes. If you don’t know times…that’s quite slow. The women’s was 1:53.

I shouldn’t have looked up the times. It only freaked me out more. Especially because I have not been training much. Like, not at all. But, even if it takes me longer than my marathons have taken me, at least I’ll be running at midnight, on the Extra Terrestrial Highway with the chance of being abducted. Which, is pretty sweet, even if you’re crawling across the finish line at 4 am. Right?

Anyway. Pray for me, light a candle, sacrifice a goat. Whatever you do man, just do it fast.
