4 days, 10 hours, and 21 minutes....This is how long I have left until the start of my first 1/2 marathon. Am I crazy? Probably. My goal time is 2 1/2 hours so hopefully next week as I write complaining about my sore feet, I will be able to say that not only did I finish the 13.1 miles I did it in the time that I wanted to. Everyone wish me luck.
This weight contest has opened me up to trying a lot of new things. So far this year I have completed the YMCA's triathlon challenge, Tackle the tower Cleveland (OK, so that wasn't new to me), St Malachi 5 miles run, and now this. Then later this year I still have the Warrior dash (did this twice last year, and hope to cut my time in half this year), Johnny Cake Jog, Disney's castaway cay 5k, Tough mudder, then if I am brave enough to endure the heat the Biggest loser 1/2 marathon in August.
It's amazing how much I want to do now. I don't really care about the weight lose but the training...weight lose is now just a perk.
Until next time,
