9 Signs I Didn't Think This Whole "Half-Marathon" Thing Through

What was I thinking?!

Posted on

I signed up for my first half-marathon in November...

...and this is me right now:

1. I thought it would be an easy jaunt through Disneyland...

2. ...and then at the end I'd get one of these:

3. I totally glossed over the fact that it's 13.1 MILES OF RUNNING.

4. One important thing to realize: I HATE RUNNING.

5. My training regimen basically consists of this...

The Simpsons / Gracie Films / Via tending-towards-infinity.tumblr.com

6. ...and eating lots of pasta.

(You're supposed to carbo-load, right?)

7. Rather than figuring out how I'm gonna run 13 FRIGGIN' MILES, I'm worrying about this:

8. At least I've figured out what I'm gonna wear:

9. Honestly, this will probably be me at the end of the half-marathon:

One thing I DID think through, however, is which charity I'm gonna run for: Back On My Feet.

BoMF is a nonprofit organization that — literally and figuratively — helps individuals experiencing homelessness get back on their feet.

BoMF is a nonprofit organization that — literally and figuratively — helps individuals experiencing homelessness get back on their feet.

My goal is to raise $1800 (enough to host a member in BoMF's program)... but I can't do it alone.

After all, I'm not this guy.

10. If we team up, and with your donation, maybe we can do something awesome.

I might be planning this marathon horribly, but I also have a chance to help someone's life... so it's worth it.

All that's left to say is... Avengers Assemble!
