Somehow, my coworkers persuaded me to participate in the Go! St. Louis Marathon Relay with them.
I’ll be part of a four-person, matchy-matchy team that will run 26.2 miles altogether β 6.5 miles per person β on April 19.
Training begins Monday, and my boss, who is captain of my team, sent a peppy, “Yes, we can!” e-mail today offering a workout schedule that team members can execute at our company’s fitness center. All that did was annoy me.
“Does everyone have to be so serious about this?” I thought, realizing a nanosecond later that my posing the question is precisely why I haven’t been able to lose, and keep off, the excess pounds.
