The Challenge

The email I received:
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'm gonna run a half marathon
and so are you...
My response:
Roses are yellow
Skies are grey
You gotta be crazy
to run a half marathon before May

The half marathon is in early April.
We ran a half marathon in May 2006 - it poured rain all day and was only in the 50's.
Wet, cold and numb by the end of the race.

Do I want to run 13 miles in April? Can I run 13 miles in April? It could very well snow...

Fortune: You will have good luck and overcome many hardships.

Happy Valentine's Day.

For what it's worth, you are a hero to me. I wouldn't run to the end of the driveway on a perfect June day, but I admire those who will. A half marathon makes you a goddess.

Aw shucks. Thanks. But I haven't run in months and training this time of year is tough. You know how narrow 103 is without the snow and ice...
I'm thinking about the Seacoast Half Marathon ~ it's in November.

I'm sure glad I didn't get an e-mail like that!
