November 4, 2009


okay... first let me update y'all. Gigglemom was in the hospital for 2 weeks. she's home. doing better. back to smoking. good for her. (yes. the last bit was sarcasm)

I've decided that I am going to run a marathon before I turn 40 on June 21, 2010.

There's a Jersey Shore Marathon in May... that gives me 6 months.

To catch you up, I'm posting my facebook status updates from the past few days to let you know how the training is going.

Erin Gigglechick Bennett just looked for my old copy of Dawn Dais "The Nonrunner's Marathon Guide for Women - Your guide to get you from recliner to race day" - it's under the clutter somewhere - 2 copies, in fact... I DID, however, find an 8 year old stick of Bodyglide and an EMPTY 2008 Runner's Day-by-Day Log & Calendar. I need to find socks.

Erin Gigglechick Bennett just woke up -- didn't fall asleep till 7am (think I bought some faulty nyQuil) --- DID, however, find my sneakers & Day 1 running/jogging/stumbling gear... need to locate socks still. THEN it's Go Time.

Erin Gigglechick Bennett --- okay, found the socks. unfortunately, I also found a pork roll sammich at Manhattan Bagel and that was paired nicely with my couch. Day 2 tomorrow... I have all the clothes & ipod prepped and ready...

Erin Gigglechick Bennett stopped by best buy to pick up a new nike ipod contraption for my shoe & they've got a blood drive going on. $20 gift card for donors. The ipod thing is $29... I'm gonna donate my O positive goods.

Erin Gigglechick Bennett MARATHON TRAINING - DAY 3; The Adrenaline & Insanity Kicks in: so I'm now thinking, hey, maybe I should start with a HALF marathon... but it's too cold in the winter. Maybe I could train & be ready for the Key West Half Marathon by Jan. 31, 2010 (my cousins live in the Keys.) INFO: http://virl.com/c09b0
