Starting To Freak Out

Only 2 more weeks!....

(Random conversation where the topic of New Year Resolutions came up)
V: "Hey, let's do something different this year - something we've never done before!"
J: "Um. Ok. Why not? Like what though?"
V: "Let's join a marathon - it'll be fun!"

And that's how I got (quite easily) talked into joining the Standard Charted KL Marathon this year. Well, not the full 42.2 km marathon*, but 10km is already quite a lot for a marathon beginner.
(*Now, THAT would have been really asking for trouble)
10 kilometresssss....

The thing is that as it gets closer to the race day, I am starting to get kinda afraid....
10 kilometers
= 6.2 miles
= 32,808.4 feet
= 1,000,000 centimeters!

Isn't it a lot?
:(

Well, wish us luck. We are definitely gonna need it!


Getting ready for a whole new level of pain,
J

  6. Hahahah! THIS is what you were telling me about earlier today! sorry- been a bit behind on my blog reading! You're gonna be fine!! with your crazy gymming! And 10k is such a nice distance- not too short to feel like a cop out, not too painful, not much training to invest!! :D

    Support!!! Be sure to blog about it after, babe!
