The Top 7 Reasons to celebrate registering for my 7th marathon:
7. It's Philadelphia, the other birthplace of our nation. Enough said.
6. Deep deep deep down in my soul .... I have missed Saturday 8 a.m. long runs.
5. The chance to discover if Saturday 8 a.m. long runs in September could possibly be more enjoyable than those in January and Feburary.
4. My bikini will, simply, fit better.
3. I can eat everything I want (and more) for the next 4 months and still, my bikini will, simply, fit better.
2. I can also, perhaps, convince myself that I can stay healthy and stay focused and maybe, after all this time, run a Boston Qualifier time.
