Long Beach Marathon '09

I have 104 days to prepare for my next 13.1
love this video because it shows the amazing course of the Long Beach Marathon

today it is a perfect summer day and I am so happy I got out there and ran even though I could have decided not too because
~its too hot
~it is Sunday "day of rest"
~I just don't feel like it
~I am sunburnt from my run Thursday with no sunscreen
~I would rather eat brownies I made last night
~would rather paint my toenails
~insert any random excuse

I am grateful :
~that I can run
~that I know exercise is medicine and today 5 mile dose was just what I needed to brighten my mood
~that I have another event pulling me out the door because I am basically pretty unmotivated

My husband has been preparing to run the Sauvie Island (Portland) marathon which is next week. He will be trying to qualify for the Boston. He has found such joy in running and, like you, took it up in his midlife years. The video was great fun. Thanks for sharing.
