I think I am finally ready officially blog about this so that if I flake out people can ridicule and mock me into actually following through. One of my friends forced me into agreeing to run a half-marathon, and by the way she is totally not even running and joining in the misery this week like I am (j/k Michelle). So I have started my training this week and it has been hard! I can't believe that by following my schedule from marathonrookie.com that I will actually in three months be able to run 13 mile at once. I think I am on track for about a 2 hour and 50 minute time - which is more than the Olympians run a regular whole marathon. Also, I am not really a runner, I don't look like a beautiful graceful gazelle when running like Jolin probably does. In fact, once in college when Austin and I were dating we met up one morning to run and he made fun of how I look when running. His imitation of me looks like a Charlie Chaplin routine or something, or one of the three stooges.
Anyway, I am committed to training and doing this half-marathon even if I walk most of it and it takes 7 hours. I won't win the race but at least I will finish and get my middle-aged, stuck in a rut, old mom booty off the couch for awhile.
