And I’m jealous. Super super jealous!
I had such a great experience at the Marine Corps Marathon last year, and just knew I’d be running it again this year, except life had different plans and we’re in Manila instead.
I love it here, but I really wish tickets to DC were not a small fortune – I would have signed up, and forced myself to run, be it on the treadmill or during typhoons, and I would be joining my amazing friends in DC for the race.
Sad that I can no longer bust 20 miles on a Saturday morning, sad that I won’t be sharing this experience this year, sad that I’m missing an amazing race and I won’t be collecting yet another medal. It’s weird the things that makes you sad, but this truly makes me sad.
But just because I’m sad and jealous, doesn’t mean I’m not here, from halfway across the world, cheering on my friends, the many other bloggers who are running it, and all the other 35,000 runners that will be kicking some ass this weekend! Good luck to all of you!
Marine Corps Marathon: maybe I’ll see you again in 2013? Pretty please? (And you DC people better put it in your calendar, you are training with me!)
Good luck to all of you running this weekend! And when the uniformed marine slips the medal around your neck, tell me that is not much better than grabbing one from a random volunteer… And for those of you blogging, I’ll be stalking your race reports, no joke. Until then, beat the bridge and have fun!
