A little update on the roommate drama: Saruman has since spoken to the landlord, and has calmed down about the whole situation. Saruman just needs to not ever get anxious about anything ever again, and we'll be fine, methinks. (Like that'll happen!)
I can feel myself getting scared. Hawaii is sneaking up quicker and quicker each day. I don't feel anywhere near ready as of today to complete a half marathon. I guess I just feel like I should be further along than I am at this point. Perhaps even though I am very much enjoying the process, and this journey that I'm on, I see little changes everyday, I am still really caught up in the "finale", aka Hawaii. I'm afraid September is going to arrive and I'm still going to be where I'm at today; kind of able to jog, but only on a treadmill underneath a fan, for 5 minutes at a time. I also think part of it is I'm not really "tracking" my food intake right now, and when that happens it feels like cheating which brings on malaise which turns into anxiety about totally controllable things, such as how much and how well I exercise and whether I'll be ready or not.
And since this post is kind of all over the place cause I'm ADD like that, I would like to share this post by Monika Runs: 26 Reasons I love Marathons. I have not run or walked a marathon yet, but have participated in several 5k's recently and I have to say all of these things hold true for me. I stumbled upon her blog looking for the tripping hazard picture. I think I am going to read a little more thoroughly now.
