… because, first, it is 4:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning and yet again I am up and ready to go. It’s swim-Bike-Run time!
AND because next Sunday we will have to wake up even earlier – like 2:30 a.m.? – to head to the BIG SUR Marathon!
Remember when you were in college, and your evening was just about getting started at that time?
The Big Sur marathon is on my marathon bucket list and this year’s race has been sold out for months. So what happened?
In a fit of crazy spontaneity, I registered a relay team yesterday! True, I don’t get to run the whole race, but at least a leg or two of it, call it practice for next year!The relay teams have a maximum of five members and so far we have four, but thankfully there is no minimum. I will run two legs — but hey, if you’re my friend and you really, really, really want to do it with us, ping me. We’ve got a spot open.Big Sur is one of my favorite places in the area, SO pretty! Maybe we’ll go to Nepenthe for lunch after that? They make the best Mai Tais off the islands!
But why am I sitting here at 4:51 a.m. talking to you about Mai Tais when I’ve got a triathlon to head to?
