26 Miles at 26 Years of Age!

The other day a friend asked me if I still want to run a marathon.  I paused for a moment and then replied, “Yes…”  I was hesitant, because I haven’t been running much as of late, but in that moment I realized that I do still want to run a marathon.

I always thought it would be fun to run the 26 miles while I’m 26 years old, which is now, but lately thought that wouldn’t happen because I "don’t have the time/haven’t been running/lacking motivation", whatever it may be.  Then, while driving to work this morning, I realized that I CAN run a marathon while I’m 26 years old.  I will be finished with grad school in December, which will give me ample time to devote to the long runs that come with training for a marathon, and my 27th birthday isn’t until June.  So, that gives me from now until December to get my butt in running gear, and then six months to train for and run a marathon post-graduation.  I CAN DO THIS!  I WANT TO DO THIS!

So now the big question…which marathon to train for???  LA Marathon?  OC Marathon?  San Diego Rock N Roll Marathon?  What's your vote?  What’s your favorite marathon?

Happy Friday all!  I'll leave you with this little video I took Sunday night when Rugby discovered Tantalum's kitty toy.  I was trying so hard not to laugh out loud and distract him!  And notice how tiny he is {for now} especially compared to Tantalum!


  1. Long Beach is a great first timer's marathon!

  2. Hahaha I love the video! Cute and poor Tantulum!! La marathon!! :)

  3. Well you know my vote is LA because that was my first! I'm so excited your doing to do a full, I wish I could train with you!

  4. Thanks guys! I think I'm going to run the LA Marathon! :)
