In my email inbox today I received the official notification that I am eligible to enter the 2007 ING NYC Marathon.

Why in gods name am I actually considering it? All that pain, all that work and time and effort, what is it that makes you want to do it again?

Maybe it is disbelief that I did it the first time. Maybe it is a drive to increase my speed. Maybe it is an addiction to the glory. I don't know.

Look at Lance Armstrong, he said it was the hardest thing he has ever done in his life, and he wants to do it again.

I have several months to keep this urge in limbo. Try to come back to my senses and be a spectator not a participator.

But it is tempting to sign up. Aaaaaaaaargh!!

Hmmm, sounds like you are considering. Could it be the challenge? The arenaline? The TV coverage? The free beer? Or, all of the above?
