Donut Hangover

That's how yesterday started.

I woke up with a wicked stomachache and powdered sugar residue on my pajamas.

Yep. Let me paint a picture for you.

You know you've had a good time the previous night when you see something like that.

I made the decision to live it up big time the night before my official half-marathon training started, which was yesterday. And, by "live it up," I mean a night filled with multiple Parenthood episodes, a bag of powdered donuts (not the nasty Bluebird ones, but the yummy Tasty Kakes) shared with the roomie, gummie bears, and Flaming Hot Cheetos.

Despite my junk food hangover, I got my butt on the road yesterday morning for Day One of training ... 40 minutes running in the sizzling Louisiana summer heat. Miserable.

And, now begins the long journey (12 weeks to be exact) to another half-marathon. Then, if all goes as planned and I accomplish the additional training injury-free, a full marathon. That thought scares me half to death.

But ... I will try. 

First things first ... survive training and another half, recover, then continue training for the full {insert loud crying and whining sounds here) ... all while trying to stay away from powdered donuts.

I'd be sick from eating all of that, too! Those powdered donuts sure would taste good, tho!

You are a stronger person than I. No way would I get out and run in the heat. But then I have a problem breathing in the heat so thankfully I have an excuse not to do it. I'll use my treadmill in the a/c, thank-you-very-much! Best wishes to you in your training! You go, girl!
