here goes nothing....

ummmm I signed up for a half.....YIKES!!

6 months ago I was sitting in front of my computer deciding how I was going to get in shape and change my life! Now I am gonna run a half marathon!!

I won't say I was forced aheeeemmm but this is how the email from K looked

"I signed up for the Wilson Bridge Half....and your doing it with me"

in the next email there was a link to the registration page, you see most of you will say, "you could have just avoided her or deleted the email"...I see K nearly every day and she is an Attorney (I hear you shouldn't argue with law folk).....ummm I just went ahead and signed up!

Hopefully we can make friends with a doctor along the way so that when my heart stops half way through, there will be someone to save me.

I am teasing....kinda

So you blog peeps, better dig out the inspirational books and remind to suck it up when the going gets tough! We have 12 weeks.....hold everyone I am in for a ride....or a run!

  2. So exciting!! Just remember rest is the most important part of your training, it's when all the new strength happens to endure those long distances :)

  13. You will do great. The first 8-9 miles on that course are lovely (I don't know anything about the rest). I'm still debating doing that one, so I might just see you out there. ;o)
