It’s official! I’m Maniac Number 2034

So last night I applied to be in the Marathon Maniacs club!

I got approved and then applied to get my official number. I refreshed g-mail about 1,875,483,287 times in anticipation of the email arriving with my number. I couldn’t wait! FINALLY it arrived and now I’m officially a Marathon Maniac! My number is 2034 and it’s even better because my friend Tara, who I decided join the club with is Maniac number 2033. We are maniacs next to each other!


Maniac 2033 and Maniac 2034!

When I got the email finally, I was so excited and I felt so accomplished! Even though this race this past weekend wasn’t everything I wanted and ended up being pretty pooptacular, it still got me my maniac status and I’m so happy that now I’m officially a Marathon Maniac. Who would have ever thought that I would make it that far and become a maniac! Hooray!

My legs are starting to feel a little bit better and I’m excited to run again. Well, excited to just work out again in general. I won’t run until this weekend though or possibly next week, which works out well because there are a few big rain storms coming in and if you all think I don’t fare well in the cold, rain is a whole new world of hurt for me. Especially since I’ve been back in Southern CA, it seems to be just as cold as Sacramento! Brrrrr! This weekend is going to consist of a grad school applications, laundry, cleaning and doing sit ups. I’m excited to start working out on more things besides just miles upon miles. Time for a break legs!

    How long before you try to get them to change the “yellow” to a more flattering color? You know you want too – lol. WELCOME to the club :-)

    Hey my friend Lisa just got her Maniac number too, she’s Maniac 2031, actually she’s a dancing maniac because everytime the camera is there she starts dancing on the course. The yellow shirts are just great.

    Awesome, too bad those jerseys are so, so ugly! Rest those legs and get healthy. Running in the rain is fun but in the kind of rain LA gets- that downpour, horrible type.

    Congrats, Maniac! I think it is just amazing that you became a MM with your 2nd, 3rd and 4th marathon. Don’t most of those people run marathon after marathon before contemplating something like that? You’re crazy awesome.

    Congratulations!! You are an inspiration! I’ve been following your journey for a few months now. I only started running in March this year and recently completed my 4th fun-run/race. I’m so glad people like you share your story so honestly (and with lots of humour!). It’s a huge motivator to just keep going. Since you’ve posted about it many time, I’ve been reminding myself to be thankful for the fact that I can run on days when I just don’t feel like it. I hope to do my first half-marathon next year. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    I can write better than the average person (not that that is saying much these days) and I have strong opinions on various subjects. I don’t have experience as a journalist or technical writer, but what does a person need to start blogging and who pays, if the blogger gets picked up as a writer?.
