It might seem silly, but the thing that kept me motivated when I signed up for my first half marathon was Google Image searching half marathon
I named my blog The Unlikely Competitor because originally, I had picked that title for a book I thought I would write about the triumphs of my little-horse-that-could, Bam Bam Rubble. I may still do that one day, but for now, I'm just as unlikely of a competitor as he is, so I stole that title for my blog. I could have gone with Bling Whore for a blog name, but hey, I'm trying to be classy...
Besides, when you Google Image Search "bling whore", you get this image:

I'm planning on stepping into the new year with a better attitude and more motivation. And hopefully, I will actually PR in one of my upcoming races. Although, most likely not the next two as they are back to back with only 24 hours of rest in between. Yes, my loyal race buddy, T aka Run On The Sun and I are taking on Disney World's Half Marathon AND the Marathon Relay. Crazy? Yes.
Until then, I will be catching up with race reports from the Ghosts of Half Marathons Past so that I will be up to speed when when we leave for Florida! Cheers!
