Mind your own F***ing business!
So today my day was going quite jolly and I ran into someone at work who I normally like in the copy room who started telling me all of the things that could go wrong with my running Boston. I was pissed off the rest of the day (I know - this was stupid of me). I sent out my fundraising emails to colleagues at work last week. I got a few replies back asking me if I was crazy or "really?" This lady has 4 kids, and is out of shape and in her 40s. Fine. If you don't have anything positive to say, please don't tell me about it.
Of course I am nervous, since I have never given birth before - to run a marathon 2 months later.
I don't know what condition my body will be in. I just know I can do it. I will walk, I will crawl, I will hopefully run the majority of it (at least jog it). When people start questioning me though, I start freaking out!
My family has not asked me how I will do this or if I will be able to do this. There is no IF here. I appreciate this support and belief. Maybe I am partially unrealistic but I am determined enough that I'll do everything in my power to cross the line. And so my thought for the day is, Mind your own damn business!!
On a positive note, I wonder if my child will come out wanting GU. Hmm.. what did you crave during your pregnancy? Um.. Vanilla Bean Gu?? This kid might be running(crawling?) Boston next to me!
