I made a deal with the devil. Ok, it was just Dan. Being that I'm all adult and stuff, and have grown up responsibilites (ie, bills to pay) I have been thinking a lot lately about how to prioritize the stuff I want to spend money on. Becuase there is a lot of stuff I want to spend money on, and I just can't do it all. I'd be able to spend money on more of the stuff I want if it wasn't for this stupid house. Well, the house isnt stupid. I love our house. But, I'd have a lot more free cash if we still only had a $900 mortgage payment! Our new one is, uh, more than that. But then again, we'd still be crammed into an 800 sqft house with 3 dogs. And that wasnt very fun either.
Anyway. I was planning to do KS 70.3. Honestly though, I wasn't really looking forward to it all that much. I was, but not the same way I am looking forward to my marathons this year. I dont know WHAT my deal is, but I just want to run my ass off this year. So, in the interest of being more running oriented, I made a deal with Dan. I'd forego the KS 70.3 and it's $250 entry fee (I know it's published as $225, but after all the Active fees, it's way more) and get a Garmin Forerunner instead. Yay! I ordered it yesterday, I cant wait to get my new toy. Maybe actually seeing my slow ass pace while I'm running will motivate me to go faster. Yeah! Thats the ticket!
And, I'm almost feeling like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders in not having to train for a 70.3. That's a pretty serious distance to take on after I pretty much took all of last year off. So, I will be runner girl this year and just do a few of the shorter local tris.
