[picture coming soon. I can't deal with this right now, I have to make dinner]
Here I am just days away from one of the physically hardest things I will probably ever do in my life. I know that sounds dramatic, but that is truly how I'm looking at it. I was thinking about labor and delivery and I decided that the marathon is probably harder. Because when you are pregnant, the baby has to come out - I mean, you can't just quit in the middle and say that's it, I'm done. I am fully aware that the pain of labor is much more intense (duh) and the recovery after having a baby is significantly difficult (can we episiotomy??). But you have no options. With a marathon, I can quit. So sticking to it is going to be really hard especially when I'm dragging and hurting.
And that my friends is why I'm doing it. I'm a quitter. When the going gets tough, I quit. So this marathon has been an exercise in persistence, setting a goal, and doing it. I am battling the angel and the devil on my shoulder.
(Total sidebar here... Mark and Zach are talking about some picture of a woman sweeping. All you see are the legs, high heels, and a broom. Mark says, "Those legs are pretty muscular, those aren't Mommie's legs." Ok, I'm really proud of my legs, they are the best looking legs I've ever had. Someone is in the dog house. Want to guess who?) [another picture comin]
Anyway back to the subject... As I am closing in on my "ADHD Tour of Nashville", I am trying really hard to focus on the angel. I have trained for this, I can do this... So when I hear this song on the radio, it makes sense...
