i'm alive...

What does it feel like to run a marathon?

Well, yesterday my 2 year old nephew thought it would be funny to jump up and down on my legs when I tried to pick him up.

That's pretty much the image I had as I hit mile 17. A constant pain in the legs that throbs and throbs.

Other highlights include:

• A massive blister on the ball of my right foot.

• Knees that "lock" when left unmoved for more than 5 minutes.

• A sudden loss of mathmatical ability (I started counting on my fingers how many miles were left when we hit 20).

• A hard-on for Stoffer's mac and cheese like nobody's business.
