Go Lauren Go!

I've been running so much recently that people keep asking me if I'm training for a marathon. I'm not, but that got me thinking if I could do a marathon.

A whole marathon is 26.2 miles. In laymen's terms, fucking long. I would die. But a half-marathon, that I could do. 13 miles! I run 5 miles when I go running, so I feel like I could work up to 13 miles.

I was talking to my friend Lyla about it, and she said she would do a half-marathon with me. And then I told a bunch of people I was going to do a half marathon. And then I told my mom, and she and Julius bought tickets to come see me run.

So then I thought, shit, I really have to do this.

And I really have to! Because I just registered, and I'll be damned if I'm going to lose that registration money now.

Come watch me run on November 15!

I get a free beer at the finish line! Sweet!

Hey Lauren! I found you! Now I can stalk you!

Teddy ran a half marathon and wants to do more. I don't run...I hate it, but going to cheer him on was fun! We went to 3 different locations to see him. He ended up fracturing a bone in his foot, but finished!!

Good luck! We will come see you if we can!
