I Must Be Crazy!

Do you remember how I posted last week about 8 things. One of my 8 things to do before I die was to run a marathon. Well I just registered to run a half marathon (13+ miles) in Orlando with Brandi.
Did I mention I loathe running? and I'm totally out of shape? And will be over 35 when the marathon happens? But I figure if I don't do this now (Jan 09) then the I probably never will.

I think I'm just as excited to meet Brandi as I am about the marathon. The last time I ran a mile I puked.

So Bring on the puke buckets and play me some Rocky. I start training tomorrow.

I have a friend who just ran the 1/2 marathon in January in Orlando. She had never done anything like that before. Started training about 8 months before it and she did it. I was so proud of her.

It inspired me to start the couch to 5K program. It has been great.

You can do it. Go for it.

I am impressed. I don't know if I would be able to do it. I bet, however, that you will feel incredible and will love being in such great shape. I hate running too. Our cousin Shane did it though--he loved it and shed 40 unwanted pounds in the process. You don't have any room to shed. You better get some high calorie good for you food! :)

Go, Steffany, go!! :0)

I wish I lived closer to Orlando... I'd much rather run a half-marathon WITH good friends than alone!

I LOVE checking things off the "life-goals" list. There is NOTHING more satisfying!
