#5

#5….run a half marathon…already I don’t know what I was thinking when I added this to the list.  If you know me at all you know I hate running.  Hate it.  Always have.  woof.  So why would I put anything having to do with running on my life to-do list?  Still not entirely sure?  I’ve heard that after completing a marathon the sense of accomplishment is overwhelming.  There’s no way I’m running a full marathon, so I figured a half marathon would be a nice compromise.  Hopefully I don’t get only half the sense of accomplishment.
I also like the idea of having such a long term goal.  Generally speaking I’m not very good at sticking with things.  Some may call me flighty, I prefer to think of it as an ability to like every idea that I have.  Ya, that works.  Anyway.  I’ve chosen a half marathon (that’s half the battle right?) to run.  It is the Wallis Sands Half Marathon on May 6th.  A very long 16 weeks from now and a mere 23 days before my birthday (cutting it kind of close, so if its canceled I’m in a lot of trouble).

I’ve already devised (googled) a half marathon 16 week training schedule for beginners.  Workouts start tomorrow (yippie?)  Will update you on all the fun I’m having.
