So, this is what my 50 states map looks like right now…
This is what my map will look like at the end of 2013 if all of my crazy plans fall into place…
Yes, there are 10 states in red!
The stars are trying to align for me. I’ve already signed up for and am midway through training for the five half marathons in five days that will net me Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Kansas, and Colorado. Rhode Island and Connecticut are obliging me by putting back to back half marathons in October on a weekend that is likely to be a long weekend for my children. Now I’m just waiting for North Dakota to fall into place with South Dakota for back to back halves in August, when I’m already in that area.
Seriously, people, it’s like I’m SUPPOSED to do this. And if you are adding, you’ll notice that’s 9 half marathons. Given that I’m already planning one in April in NC and one in May in MD and umm, yeah, that’s 11 half marathons in 1013.
Shoot, if I’m going to do 11, I might as well do 13.
Like I said, it’s a special kind of crazy.
