they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

13.1 tomorrow.

i'm much more relaxed about tomorrow's half marathon than i usually am.
probably because my leg doesn't hurt like it did last year.
and it is supposed to be 50 degrees at the start - not 30 degrees.
and it won't be raining.
and i'm not eating raw fish for dinner.
instead, i'm making naan pizza.
and drinking a glass or two of wine.
and rolling out on my foam roller.
watching a movie.
going to bed before 10.
waking up at 5:30.
drinking 1 cup of coffee.
which will hopefully get things movin'
(if you know what i mean.)
and then i'll go line up in a nervous-energy filled group
of thousands of runners
by the 9 minute pace time marker
and then,
THEN is when i will be nervous.
because my training runs have been coming in closer to 9.4 minute miles.
slower than i was last year.
much slower.
i think it's age.
or maybe
that i'm not eating meat anymore.
but whatever it is
i'll try to take it in stride
and just be happy that i'm running
that i can run 13.1 miles.
even though we all know that i will be pissed if i don't finish in under 2 hours.
