Nothing captures my attention quite like a 13.1 or a 26.2 decal on the back of a car. The person driving could have just cut me off in traffic – theoretically of course…we all know that wouldn’t happen because runners are NICE PEOPLE – and I would still want to know more about them and be their friend. This is probably going to sound really stupid, but one thing I was really looking forward to upon completing my half was being able to affix one of these decals to the back of my Mazda. Like being a part of a really cool club.
From here on out, whether they care or not, everyone on the road will know what I’ve accomplished. I’m excited to add a 26.2 to it next year!
Now on to a big upcoming event that I don’t even have to train for. I’m plunging again in 2014!
“Again” because I’ve done this once before. In 2010. In a snowstorm. And ended up wearing the wrong pair of pants home. I actually blogged my whole experience here if you would like to read all about it. I never did figure out who those pants belonged to.
Anyway, all epic day drinking aside, this event is seriously fun if your idea of serious fun is diving into the freezing Bay with thousands of drunk people. Okay when I write it out like that it sounds absolutely terrible, but I promise it’s a blast. It’s a fun time with friends, there is great entertainment all day and it raises money for a spectacular cause so I’m very excited to participate. If I can raise the required $75, I’ll even wear a bikini. I hope it snows again this year!
Yes, I’m insane.
