Anchorage it is!

I know I said I was going to do San Diego, but last night I changed my mind. Today I actually registered for the Mayor's Marathon on June 21, 2008 in Anchorage, Alaska!!!!

I am so excited!

Last night - just when I was about to call my nephew to tell him that I wasn't coming to Alaska - he called me and told me that he and his wife were just so excited that I am coming to visit, that he is going to start training, etc. I sheepishly told him I was thinking I was going to register for San Diego instead.... but I should think about it. I decided to give myself 24 hours, but decided in about one hour.

I can't pass up this chance to go to Alaska, which I have always wanted to do. I love this nephew and I will enjoy staying with him - it is not a lifetime, it is a few days for crying out loud! Imagine running a marathon with your beloved nephew!! What fun!

So now all I have to do is train! I am so so so so excited!
