Yes, I succumbed to something I swore I would not do after a multitude of date changes and the city council/organization's constant jerking around of the good people who wanted to support it - I signed up for the LA Marathon.
Yesterday was the last day to sign up before prices went up to $125 (from $95) and although vastly undertrained, my 22-year old cousin vowed to train in the remaining month and a half to run it (his first). So...there I'll be, back on pacing duties to run my hometown marathon for 3 years in a row. I am the 'LA Runner' after all. Cheesy, I know.
Oh, and I was told I had to do this to gain better chances of winning a $100 Gift Certificate to Online Shoes. So there ya go Danica. Hook a brotha up.
