It's a marathon! OK... it's a 1/2 Marathon. That's 13 miles.
OMG. What have I done? I must be crazy. You’d have to be crazy, right? Well, what’s done is done.
I signed up to run/walk the 2011 Pittsburgh Half-Marathon.
I’m excited. I’m freaked. I’m nervous – already?!? FCOL the race is 8 months away. I can do this, right? Right!
OMG – what have I done?
I’ve never done anything more than a 5K. I haven't even done a 10K yet. Why am I doing a ½ Marathon?
I blame Kristin. It's her fault. :-) One of my high school alums in The Burgh is doing it and we’ve been talking about it (via FB and e-mail) so I thought I would give it a shot. I currently can walk a mile in about 2 min. I don’t jog. Not even a little bit. The last time I ran, I was dreaming I was being chased.
I’ve got all sorts of training materials to help me get up to jogging – books, podcasts, e-newsletters, couch-to-5K/10K podcasts, nike sport fob (whatever that thing is called)– but I haven’t begun to use any of it. AT ALL.
The last 2 5Ks I signed up for, I slept in and skipped. (LOSER)
So, the deed is done.
No more excuses.
No more slacking.
Starting today, we begin training for a half-marathon.
Now, where did I putting my shoes?
