And so … the time has finally come … today, I fly out to Hawai’i for a few days so that I can run my first full marathon this weekend. In all honesty, I am completely not ready for this race. Personal circumstances have ruined my training schedule in the past few months and, well, I’m just not ready. But, I’m going to do the race anyways. Even more important than racing, I’m actually looking forward to relaxing a bit in Hawai’i for a few days. After the past few months that I’ve been thru, I think I’m totally deserving of a little rest and relaxation.
This afternoon, Emma and I fly to Honolulu together. I have a suitcase filled with nothing but shorts, t-shirts and tank tops. I’m planning on being as relaxed and low key as possible. On Sunday, I’ll be running the 40th annual Honolulu Marathon and, gods help me, I’ll finish the race in a reasonable time. I’m making no predictions, I’m just planning on getting it done.
Hawai’i is 3 hours behind LA which is 3 hours behind NYC so I’ll be on a much different time table. I’ll be working as much as I can on this trip so you’ll be hearing from me. Oh and I promise to drink a few tropical cocktails for each and every one of you :D Happy Thursday!
