I've been so caught up in my Movember auction that I haven't had a chance to think about what I wanted to write this week.
So I asked my husband. He suggested writing about the Wisconsin domination over Minnesota this past weekend. In college football the Badgers won and will keep the Paul Bunyan Axe. In hockey, they split the series, which is considerable because the Gophers are ranked #1. In the NFL....well, obviously the Packers won, that's what we do.
He suggested I talk about Joe Frazier. Yes, his death is major news in the sports world, but not anything I am qualified to talk about. Then he mentioned how some UFC guy who wasn't supposed to lose a match for 2 years almost lost...or something. I don't even know what he was thinking, talking to me about boxing.
Moving along. Penn state? No, I'll keep my anger inside my own head. NBA lockout? Is anyone even aware that the season hasn't started? NCAA basketball....I'll wait until April. Don't want to get the March Madness started too early.
Hmm...Well, we are a site dedicated to sports, fandom and fitness so maybe I should talk about my fitness goals. That's all I've been talking about on my personal blog lately so why not spill it over here too. I signed up for a half marathon! This is exciting and scary. As of right now I can run about 4 miles.
Yep. A half is 13.1 miles. I said I can do 4. I am well aware that I have The Crazy right now. Good news is, the race isn't until May so I have all winter to train. Bad news is I live in the frozen tundra that is Minnesota so running outside is pretty much impossible for the next 4 to 5 months. Training for a half on the treadmill probably isn't ideal, but I'll work with what I got.
Also, yes, this is me blatantly asking you for encouragement. I CAN ONLY RUN 4 MILES RIGHT NOW! Tell me I will be able to make it through this training and I will not die on the Door County peninsula. The other day my husband told me he had never seen someone so determined to do something they were so bad at. I decided to take it as a compliment. Finally! My stubbornness is coming in handy!
I am very sorry for the randomness of this post. But like I said, the auction is taking up all my brain space.
