You know you’ve gotten alarmingly out of shape when you’re sore two days after a yoga class.

Two days out from the half marathon and I’m insatiably hungry. I can’t get full, no matter what I eat. Yesterday (the day after the half) I had:

  • Three fake chicken patties
  • Plate of spinach
  • Basil pesto
  • Coldstone ice cream
  • Caprese wrap
  • Granola bar
  • Half a Moe’s quesadilla
  • Moe’s chips with salsa
  • Waffle fries

And the day of the half:

  • Half a bag of Bugles
  • Veggie burger
  • Peanut butter brownie
  • Mini cupcake
  • Pasta salad
  • Quinoa
  • Hummus
  • Pretzels
  • Baby carrots
  • Bell peppers
  • Waffle fries
  • Pizza

I can’t stop eating.

My quadriceps flex visibly when I walk. If I thought my legs were ridiculous before, now they’re just getting insane.

Except I can’t really walk properly from the half. My knees are swollen and stiff. Every muscle in my legs is in pain.

Just amputate everything from the waist down. It’s easier that way.

I think I saw God in my post race shower.

Real talk.

I was more afraid of having to poop during the half marathon than anything else—fatigue, nausea, hurting myself.

Pooping. I was afraid of having to poop.

There’s still time to kidnap me before the half marathon tomorrow! You have until 7:00 AM, people. Don’t disappoint me.

Two, count ‘em 1 and 2, people told me I looked more fit yesterday. Fuck yeah! I’ll step on the scale tonight and see if they’re right.

WHY did I think a half-marathon was a good idea. WHY.
