So what are we going to do to get there you ask? I have no idea yet. I will be registering to run the Athens, OH half marathon on Sunday April 14, 2013. After that I am not sure...I have a lot of research to do on fuel, food, and running schedules over the next few months. As well as finish reading the rest of Runners World Big Book of Marathons and Half Marathons. That means that this post is to tell you all I have a goal and I am going to need your support, advice, and encouragement to get there. It is a huge goal I never ever thought I would ever set for myself.
A year ago I was 10lbs heavier and had no interest in running let alone 26.2 miles. I also was incredibly unhappy with myself and my life the way it was playing out. Running has helped me to center myself as a person and has helped begin the pulling out of a dark scary place I was headed. Though I am not finished coming out of that place, not even close if we want to be honest about it, having a long term goal is the best thing I can do for myself. Something to work for something to look forward to, something to count down to, and something to satisfy the pain I feel on a regular basis. As this new adventure begins some posts may get super personal and dark, but I promise they wont all be that way and lets be honest four 10 weeks I will be training all over Europe so how terrible could that be! Thank you in advance for being loyal and amazing!
