I registered yesterday, as promised, and it's funny, but just registering gave me the same rush I remember feeling almost a year ago when I signed up for Disney: It's exciting to have that goal in front of me, and even though I know the challenge will be daunting, I'm looking forward to the experience.
Thanks to all the readers who have given advice about the ITBS -- I will consider it all (however, I have to admit that accupuncture scares the bejesus out of me; I am not a fan of needles -- but perhaps I will be brave).
As a last note for this post -- it represents my 500th post! Incredible, huh? I have found a reason 500 times to jibber-jabber (mostly about running). Although, considering that I have hosted this blog for nearly two years (June will be my two year blogoversary), it also demonstrates that I have taken significant breaks from the jibber-jabber (even a motor-mouth needs a few days of rest). Thanks for reading! Running wouldn't be the same without the community of "bleaders" (yeah, that's "blog" + "readers"; clever, aren't I?).
