I'm Not a Runner

I'm not a runner.  I admire runners.  I think they are disciplined and strong.  I have tried to emulate runners.  Two times now, I have participated in 1/2 marathons in order to see if I could discipline myself as runners do.  I completed the 1/2 marathons, and actually did alright...but it wasn't discipline that got me through it.  It was adrenaline.

I'm not a runner.  But, I signed up for another 1/2 marathon.  It was mainly out of stupidity.  Nonetheless, I'm doing it.  And this time around, it's been so so so hard for me to run.  I fear huge embarrassment.  So, come Saturday, March 3, we'll just have to see how I do. 

I'm not a runner, but I can run -- or trot.

Oh Lori, if you are hoping that I'll inspire you...good luck. I may inspire you to make brownies and cheer the other people on...but I don't think that's what you're looking for!:)
