Okay internet world, I did it. I pulled the trigger. I made the leap. I did something I was really scared of. I registered for a Half Marathon. My original plan for this coming year was to get back into running and do some 5Ks and 10Ks. But with no plan, and no "A" race I am so lost with my training and just can't seem to get into it. I run/walk (or slog as I like to call it) a couple miles here and there but nothing consistent. I am also carrying around A LOT of extra weight from baby #3 that doesn't seem to want to budge as quickly as it had the last couple times. I really needed something to scare me into training my ass off. Literally!
So I gave myself an "A" race. The race I have wanted to do all along. My goal race. The race I have been afraid to face. The Half Marathon. I know to some the 13.1 distance is not much. But When I started this journey a 5K seemed impossible to me never mind a Half. I chose the Smuttynose Rockfest HALF Marathon. Mostly because I hear it's pretty flat and it's not to far from home. I also felt this year was a good year to just do it because I have joined an amazing team of women at Team Tough Chick and I will have great support to get through any fears I face.
So here I sit, 60-70lbs over weight, no training plan just yet, no nutrition plan to follow and a Half Marathon just under a year away. Hoping I can get my shit together to pull this off.
What have I done!!!!
