Why not run a marathon?
The Long Beach Marathon is this weekend, and I was really planning on running it.
1) I am nowhere near my planned goal of 3:30...I would guess that I am just under 4 hours (again). That may sound impressive to some of you non-marathon runners, but it's kind of embarrassing when my friends' 60 year old parents are faster than me.
2) It might rain on Sunday; and even if it doesn't, the ground will be wet from Saturday.
3) Nobody is available to teach my sailing class, and unless I win the marathon, I will not be done in time.
4) I suffered a horrible head injury while following ICE (heretofore Snake Woman) out of our Spanish Class yesterday. Ice es antipatica y muy baja. I should have remembered how short she was, when she made it easily under the television that hangs near the door. Being of above average height, I was not so lucky. ICE found my misfortune to be very funny, and allowed me to drive home with a bleeding head wound. I shall never again complain when Nico hits me in the head.
