26.2 for Beer???

Well, not quite.  But it is official - I have registered for the SMUTTYNOSE ROCKFEST MARATHON!  As many of you may have guessed, I am hooked on running the Boston Marathon for Dana-Farber for as long as my body will allow, which hopefully is a very long time.  However, you may not have predicted that I'd be running more than one marathon a year.  Well, it occurred to me the other day that I have not run since Marathon Monday.  Yes, a lot has been going on but running 3 miles doesn't take that long.  This is when I realized that I am a goal oriented person in every aspect of my life and that I simply require a concrete goal to motivate me to lace up my running shoes.  Thus, I started shopping for fall marathons.  Through the recommendation of some good friends and possibly through the lure of a good microbrew, I decided to register for the Smuttynose Marathon.  Luckily, I have already found a running buddy - or at least someone who will wait for me at the end and toast to all 26.2 miles.  The speedy, Lynda Nijensohn (see previous post), has said she is up for the challenge as well. And Team Living Proof continues...
