Just like a 5K.. only twice

When my company sent out an email saying they were sponsoring a team for the Falmouth Road Race, a popular 7 mile race on the coast of Cape Cod in August, I thought, good for them! I'd totally go hand out water and cheer on the runners. It wasn't until I told the hubs about it that evening, and he says "Why don't you run it?" Um... cos its 7 miles, and all I've ever run is a 5K.. that's why. Then for some crazy reason, the next morning I emailed the girl saying that I'm in. Did I feel like I had lost 5 lbs as soon as I sent that email? Totally.. Now I have to start training for this marathon (minus 19.2 miles). Yesterday I started with 2.5 miles, and let me tell you..

Its going to be a long summer.
