Is it worth it?

I am back. I am off again. I leave for Florida on Wednesday. I am going to run in a marathon on Jan 11th. No I am not ready. Is anyone ever ready to run 26.2 miles? I am scared to death. I am in tears today thinking about it. I can't run that far that is ridiculous. Everyone says you are not trying to win just finish. Yes, that is true, slow and steady, focus on the next corner, yes keep the concentration. 26.2 miles is a freaking long way! What was I thinking? Well I guess I will give it a shot. I get my trip to Florida, I get to see the other Pakulaks , I get to bring my daughter back with me, I get to see Heather twice in one year! It will hurt and I might die but I will have achieved a great goal.

I'm proud of you.
I could never have signed on to do that in the first place. Seriously?... running??

You'll do great, you'll have a fabulous time and I can't wait to see you (and Melissa!) again.
