You pay them $60 and they let you run 13.1 miles. Sign me up.

I've gotten behind on my One Month to Live Challenge that I started about two weeks ago.

I'm about two weeks behind.

At the end of each chapter of the OMTL book, there is a follow-up suggestion, something to ponder, or a short activity. If I remember correctly (granted it's been two weeks), my first day's activity was to think of five things I wanted to change about my life before my pretend death.

I didn't think of anything I wanted to change. I did, however, decide that I would try to run a half-marathon.

I haven't ran since last October's 5k, but I think a half-marathon is totally doable. I'm excited to have a goal to dedicate myself to these next few months. I'm in a waiting limbo with dental school, so now is definitely probably a good time for a half-marathon.

And in case you're wondering, I did not for one second contemplate running a full marathon. I have no desire to actually die, I just want to hypothetically live as if I'm going to die very soon.
And plus, marathons are for Africans. Baby, they were born to run.

So, I'm aiming for the Tobacco Road half-marathon, which takes place on March 18, 2012. I haven't registered yet, so I'm not 100% committed, as is the case with most things in my life. I'm a little worried because I don't want to start my training during the winter months. I also am a little hesistant because I don't want to lose my curves, if you know what I mean.


I will now go back to Microsoft Paint work, but I also wanted to show you a picture of the cake I made for a birthday dinner last night:


I am my own worst critic, but I was fairly pleased with how this Wisconsin Badgers theme cake turned out.
Until the Italian waiter sat the cake down on the table to be served and cheered "Go Wolfpack!"
