This has been my training for the Kaiser half marathon on Superbowl Sunday: a 5-mile run for 45 minutes and a 7-mile run for 63 minutes. That’s it, folks. I’m hanging up my running shoes and relaxing until showtime. I used to be that psycho workout girl who ran for an hour a day everyday and maybe-possibly shed three pounds…at the most. What a waste of life! I could’ve been sharing a bottle of wine with friends.
I’m trying to wrap my head around the fact that I called out ‘racing’ as one of my new year’s resolutions. Who am I kidding? I hate it. Can’t stand it. No runner’s high for this miserable sprinter. Pass me another In-n-Out cheeseburger because this half marathon may be the last form of sustained exercise that I’ll do for the rest of 2010.
I find it depressing that Dean is losing weight from reducing his beer intake. The guy consumes a ton of calories, doesn’t exercise, and is ready to walk down the aisle in great shape. I run and I actually gain weight.
