Making it official

Taking the lead from Tesney (not even going to link her up because she is a "secret keeper", so it would just be pointless), I am going to make it official.

I am planning on running the St. Jude's 1/2 marathon in December with Matthew.

There, it's out, now I feel like I have to do it or I am a big liar.

And I don't want to be known as a liar.

I am running 2.5 miles about 4 times a week right now and am going to start officially training in September (after I wean Elyn).

I have run 2 half-marathons in the past, before babies.

And because I added those two words to the end of the previous sentence, I am basically running my first 1/2 marathon again.

I am excited about the training. Also nervous.

Check back in December to see how I do.

My goal...to finish.

Great job, D! I am going to start training this week for a race in December, as well. Can you believe you were one of the friends that talked me into running? You can do it!

Good for you! I know you had talked about maybe doing that. It's good to make that commitment. Training in September. Man, I wish I could train with you, I would. Maybe in the future you can motivate me to do that, too. Way to go!

That's awesome!! My hubby ran it last year, and said it was a great run through a lot of pretty parks and neighborhoods. Good luck with your training!!!!
