Run Away! Run Away!

Our entry forms are officially in the mail and hopefully we will be running in the Peachtree Road Race this July 4th. Of course, there is a chance that our entries won't get randomly picked but it seems pretty slim, we made it in last year. I've already decided if my entry doesn't make it I will stand on the sidelines in the last 1/2 mile and pass out doughnut holes, like a woman did last year. It was just the best thing ever, you feel like death and then there's this little burst of sugar - zip, zip! Of course it only lasted about two minutes but still, we remember Doughnut Hole Lady with great fondness.
But the doughnut holes will have to wait, with less than four months until the race Andrew & I will have to get serious. This will mean getting up BEFORE 6:45 AM in the morning to run. Argh. We have both needed a fitness kick-start for a good long while and hopefully this will do the trick. After the awesome but brutal experience of last year's race we decided that 2003 would be different, we would be prepared for this one.
Of course, now I'm sitting here thinking of doughnut holes. Maybe I don't have the right mindset for this.
