i'll never be a swimmer...

Posted Dec 17 2010 12:00am
First blog posts can be intimidating.  They are supposed to set the tone for the entirety of your blog - nothing like a little pressure, eh?  So, let me start with this statement: I'll never be a swimmer.  I can fake it, but I'll never swim well.  It's not in my genes.  I can fake being able to run, but alas, swimming is a different story.

I swam 10 wimpy laps yesterday and they weren't pretty.  On the other hand, I ran 5k in 26.06; a time that I know isn't wonderful, but isn't completely appalling either.  I can work off that time and know that I can improve it.  Those laps?  Well, I can make them a little less ugly, but it won't stop me from looking like a spazz splashing around in the water.

So what's the purpose of this blog?  Who knows!  Whatever I feel like at any given time.  I plan to run 1,000+ miles in 2011 (more on that later), enter lots of races, and have lots of fun doing it.  Plan on oodles of pictures (bare bones for the time being- sorry), sarcasm, and plenty of weirdness.

One last thing - about the name: take it as either: watch Meg O run or watch me go run.  I like the versatility of it!
