Well, maybe not lights. More like print. But, hey, print is still cool, right???
A few weeks ago, Beth at Shut Up and Run featured a blog post about Melinda Hinson Neely and her upcoming book about first-time marathoners. She was looking for marathon virgins to follow during their training. Her original mission was to find five people to follow in-depth. Well, according to her blog, her response was overwhelming and she couldn’t pick just five. She picked six people to chronicle in-depth and roughly 30 others to highlight. And guess what! She picked little ol’ me. 🙂 Not for the in-depth gig–just the highlight. Who CARES if she picked everyone that responded? A participation award is still an award! And who CARES if in the announcement she got the city wrong? (I moved FROM Jackson, not TO Jackson. Four years ago. lol) Details, details!
Talk about motivation! As if my Vegas run buddy Michele and all of you weren’t enough to keep me accountable, now if I punk out Melinda will write about it and tell the whole world what a wus I am. As much as I enjoy public humiliation, I prefer it when it’s in the moment and not documented for generations to come.
One week down. Seventeen to go!
