Marathon Maniac # 3228

As for my 13.1 sticker. I like for people to see me for all the things I do, for my sake and for my kids' sake. When people see four kids pile out of a mini-van they usually aren't expecting to see a mom who can say she ran a half marathon. I know there are more moms out there who are active in sports and I wish they would do the little things like put that silly sticker on the back of their van. I view it as incentive. It might inspire someone who was considering getting into running, or thinking of training for a half or whole marathon. Plus it's exciting to see another vehicle with the same sticker, almost like seeing a member of the family!! It might be a phase and perhaps I'll take the sticker off down the road, but for now, I like to see it there, it makes me smile.
To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire

We're too damned close to the stupid lake...
Hey, speaking of stickers...I have one that says "who fartlek'd?" on my car!
Here's where I bought mine:
Had to LOL here. Another runner had no idea what the term meant. As I recall I learned the word within a month of taking up running!
