So yesterday I mentioned I signed up for my first half. I am terrified to say the least. But I really needed this. I need a kick in the behind to get back into gear. I’ve already said over and over that our house has taken all of my time and energy. Well we’ve been here almost a year and it’s time to get back into our routines.
I am running the Indy Mini. It’s one of the biggest in the country. I have family and friends who have ran it in the past. I have always been on the fence about whether I wanted to take on 13.1. One night last month we were sitting at our neighbor’s house. The husbands had already decided they were going to do it. John asked me if I wanted to do it. My wifey (I’ll tell you all about her in a follow up post) said she’d do it with me. Sold. Let’s do this.
So for almost three weeks I have been back into running mode. It feels amazing. I mean running doesn’t feel amazing all of the time. It feels amazing to be getting my groove back. I have not lost any weight yet but I can feel everything getting tighter. I have more energy and just feel overall better.
I’m not trying to run the whole 13.1. I will do my absolute best but I also know my limits. We will see how my training goes. I could surprise myself. I need this accomplishment. I needed to do something completely out of my comfort zone. If it doesn’t challenge us it doesn’t change us. This is definitely a challenge.
I will continue to update everyone as the weeks go by. Wish me luck! Have you set any epic goals this year?
