Countdown to Catalina Marathon

Catalina Marathon is this Saturday and I am officially in self-sabotage mode.  Before an important race, I always feel like I'm not ready, that I haven't trained enough, that I'm too fat for this dress, that an ache in my Achilles tendon is now full-blown tendinitis and that little sore spot in my lower back is probably spina bifida.  And, after downing a pint of McConnell's Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream while watching The Bachelor Wedding special (what have I become?) last night, I am feeling more like an on-course buffalo than a graceful and stealth gazelle.  Oh well, the scenery will be nice.

That's not me...I would never wear my race belt that high


  1. Haaaaaaaaa! I totally know what you mean! You might want to get that 'spina bifida' checked out ;)

    You are so lucky to race...oh how I miss it, and it's only been 4 weeks for me :)

    Good luck!

  2. Guilty of watching the wedding too...I blame Maddie.
