Crazy like a foxx!

It’s done! It has settled in. I have written my will and made peace with God. I’ve settled my debts (YEAH RIGHT!). I'm ready.

I’m in. I’m in way over my head!

I don’t know what took me so long to post it but maybe I was in denial!

I feel like a gigantic weight has been placed on my shoulders.

We are planning on having a party in October for all my friends and family. An official

“The last day you’ll see Izaac” party!


On a foreboding note: I told a friend that “I’ve got to run 10, today.” Remember when ‘10’ meant 10 minutes??

I do remember when "10" meant ten minutes.

AWESOME!!! This is so exciting!

You will be so ready when it rolls around the way you've been training.

Being crazy like a foxx is fun, huh! I'm not as brave as you yet, though ;)

OMG - Stef said you had signed up! Congrats on taking a big, brave step! Do you know RBR? She signed up too. Tell the Mrs. that if she gets tired of being an IM training widow, she can blog and meet some really nice folks to keep her company. :D

Enjoy the journey.

RBR said...

To quote Stef: YAY!!

I am so excited to find other people that are training for IMCdA in 09. I am terrified and totally in over my head, but hell, if not now, when? Congrats!

I also remember when 10 meant 10 minutes and I wasn't able to run all of it at once.
