Someone Get Out Their Spatula!!

In case you have no clue as to what I'm talking about (which is probably par for the course, I'm guessing), the title reference is from the movie Run Fatboy Run. The spatula is the motivator.

And I'm going to need a motivator.

I'm signing up for my first 5K run! Eek!

The very first Prairie Fire Wichita Marathon is being held on October 10th. Of course I won't be doing the marathon, but I am going to sign up for the 5K.

That's 3.1 miles. Right now I can run 1.5 miles. So, it's a little over double what I can do now. Training is definitely in order. Strict dieting is definitely in order. Pain medication, after it's done, will definitely be in order. And perhaps a stretcher.

I'm posting it here, so I can't back out. I know you won't let me, right?

Right? Hello? Is anybody out there?

So I have about 8 weeks. I can do it. I know I can.

I'll just need to visit the wizard and ask for some endurance. Now where's that yellow brick road again?

Run Fatgirl, Run.

You can do it! (I couldn't do it.) But you can do it!
