Honolulu Marathon!

Camy here, and I am writing this from Hawaii right now! I’m here to run the Honolulu Marathon on Sunday, my first marathon ever! I ran the San Jose Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon back in October and that was fun, but this is twice as long and I hope I don’t poop out midway to the finish line.

I’ve been training for about 6 months using the Jeff Galloway Run-Walk-Run method and it’s made it so that I actually love running for the first time in my life. I did a “test” run a couple weeks ago where I took all day and ran 26 miles. OH MY GOSH my feet hurt after that but I finished all 26 miles! It also took me eight and a half hours and three potty breaks, and hopefully the marathon on Sunday will not take me so long (or as many potty breaks).

What is pathetic is that there are people who walk faster than I run.

Anyway, if you happen to think of it on Sunday, say a prayer for me!

Camy, Camy, Camy. Running a marathon is the absolute LAST thing I'd want to spend my time in Hawaii doing!!!

Nonetheless, I truly admire you! You go, girl!!!

Thanks, guys! Well, I have to admit, I'm doing it to 1) get in shape since I'm a blob, 2) lose weight since I'm a blob, and 3) accomplish something personally meaningful since I'm almost 40. It has been a lot more fun than I expected it to be, that's for sure!
