Why yes, that is 26.2 miles.

It has begun.

The jokes about the race. 

You see, my husband only runs because the Air Force makes him.  He would rather be playing racquetball or doing martial arts, snowboarding or playing volleyball.  Running is not his thing.  So tonight, when we were talking about the Marine Corps Marathon, which I registered to run in today, I made a comment about it being a fairly easy course.

He stopped and just looked at me.  "Even if it was all downhill, it's still a marathon."

Did I mention that he thinks I'm crazy? 

That's okay.  He thinks my best friend, the one that decided we should do this, is crazier. 

Tom puts up with us and our craziness.  All 26.2 miles of it.  And that's why we love him!


  1. Hi Stina,

    I completely admire those who have the strength, endurance and perseverance to run a marathon! Congrats to you and your friend! When do you run? Are you training now?

    If you're interested, Jennifer from Crafolic is offering a giveaway on my blog that goes until next week Friday. It's a game she created called Journey's End. Come and check it out!

  2. WOW! You go girl! Blogging should definitely take a back seat to training for the marathon! Although we'd love glimpses into the training... I'm just saying. BTW, thanks for the moral support. I'm almost ready to blog more about the rest of the week. xoxo

  3. Wow! You are an inspiration! I hear it's a beautiful race to run ... hope the training is going well!
