Obviously, I'm talking about this.
|Note: This post contains spoilers. But, seriously, who hasn't read the books by now?|
Not running 50 miles. First of all, I haven't even know that such a thing has existed for years, I only slightly opened myself up to the possibility that it could occur in my lifetime last spring, and "eagerly anticipating" does not even come close to describing my thoughts on the subject.
So let's get back to the truly important event in my life this weekend, or at least the one I can handle thinking/blogging about. Breaking Dawn. Bella and Edward, married at last.
I'll be attending the first possible showing that I can make after school. Several people have expressed surprise at this, so let me elaborate.
"You know the theater will be packed with screaming, teenage girls, right?"
Considering I have attended all other Twilight movies on opening night, including one midnight showering (admittedly, that was a mistake) I am extremely familiar with that fact. Additionally, I did not spend 4 and a half minutes puffy painting a Team Edward shirt to only wear around my apartment, and wearing it when the movie has already been out for a week just isn't the same.
"You're going the night before your 50 miler?"
Based on my previous experience with races that terrify me, I see two options before me.
Option One: Stuff my face with carbs at home, re-evaluate my race outfit 42 times, read about other people's 50 mile races, freak out about my race, and when it all becomes full blown panic, go to bed and lay awake all night
Option Two: Stuff my face with carbs while finally fulfilling my dreams of seeing Edward and Bella's honeymoon on the big screen, enjoy shocking and grotesque vampire/werewolf violence, and dream of vampire babies.
I have also considered the fact that I will be unable to move after the race, rendering a movie theater trip impossible, or die during the race, and I am NOT leaving this earth without at least seeing part 1.
My name is Alyssa Lindsey, and I have an unhealthy obsession with dramatic young adult sci/fi novels turned into movies.
Which is why I was on pins and needles all day today until my lunchtime finally arrived and I could watch the new Hunger Games trailer on Youtube.
|Katniss, don't worry, I'll be there soon.|
Oh, and since this is supposed to be a running blog, I ran five easy miles on Sunday and this morning.
