I Immediately Regret This Decision

I’m going to cut to the chase–I’m supposed to run/speed walk/craw/jog the Marine Corps Marathon in October. How I got here is not important. I take full responsibility for allowing my friend to register me. Although, I didn’t think she was going to be able to, since website for registration kept going down. I was feeling smug because I had done a triathlon sprint just a handful of months before.

With all of that said: I AM SO FUCKING FUCKED.

Reasons Why I Should Not Run a Marathon

  1. I took a long break from running
  2. Due to that long break, I suck at running.
  3. Running sucks.
  4. I’m a few weeks behind on my training plan.
  5. It’s hot and humid outside.
  6. I will die.

Reasons Why I Should Run a Marathon

  1. I bought new running shoes.

You can see my problem. I have FIVE more reasons why I SHOULDN’T do it versus the one that I should. How do I get out of this? Is it too late to back out? Do I suck it up, train as much as I can and drop out at mile 10? What is the etiquette here?

Geraldo Makes Everyone Close Their Laptops at the Same Time

So, I was catching up on my Buzzfeed as I usually do on a Sunday morning, when I clicked on this link (SWFish but NSFLife) of a Geraldo Rivera shirtless selfie:

HOLY GOD IS IT DISTURBING TO LOOK AT. Honestly, what I find most disturbing about Geraldo Rivera’s shirtless selfie is the towel strategically placed to cover his genitals being mashed against a sink counter and his red tinted eye glasses. Also, way to rotate a picture Geraldo. This image will haunt me.

For all of you, that much like myself clicked out of some weird perverse curiosity, I’ll leave this:
