Olivia's Marathon Misadventures

"Sometimes it is more important to discover...

...what one cannot do, than what one can do." Lin Yu-t'ang, chinese writer 19th c.

That is what I feel about this weekend's coming 20 mile run. We are going back to my arch-nemesis run: Grassland Elementary, where farms don't grow anything but horses. Oh I hated, hated that run. What's worse: it is an out-and-back, which I find very difficult. At least in a circuit, I know that I have to keep going forward to get home. It is a total mind game, but it works for me.

There is a 30% chance of rain showers as well. Great. Someone just go on and put nettles in my shoes too. The upside: it isn't flat.

Oh woe is me! This is going to be TERR-ible.

  • I had to back and read the Grassland blog - thanks for giving me a taste of what this Saturday's run will be like. Let's try and do this one NOT hungover, okay?
