Give Me One Reason

Countdown: 14 hours

If a genie gave you three wishes, what would you wish for?  Along with, "Did you watch Boy Meets World last night?", this was a popular question in the 90s.  Who am I kidding?  It still is.  Our world is wish-obsessed.  Make a wish when you blow out a candle.  Wish upon a star.  Oh, it's 11:11?  You better make a wish.  #wishing

I forgot to mention one of the most important reasons why I'm running a half-marathon tomorrow.  Have you ever wished that you could eat anything your heart desires without gaining a pound?  French toast with a side of six-pack, please.  Or maybe you've wished that you could be Michael Phelps for a day.  Well, that's the same thing.  The sexy Olympic swimmer eats up to 12,000 calories a day while training.  While I don't plan on eating even a third of that intake, I am definitely going to go off on carbs this weekend.  It's called carbo-loading and it's encouraged.  Need a reason to run a half-marathon?  This is it.

  1. fun fact: Michael Phelps makes me *very* uncomfortable. Cringey. Cardboard cut outs freak me out, posters are weird, the interviews are awkward. I have Phelpsaphobia.
