My own inner reaction is probably an incredulously, almost sarcastic, "Way to go. you'll love it."
But, I am excited about the challenge. It is only day one after-all.
I'm not quite sure what kind of insanity got ahold of me... (actually I think it happened while reading that damned Jack Canfield! AND checking out my friend Angela's facebook page about her own recent marathon run) but it dawned on me running a half marathon is something I've just always wanted to do. I've written it as a goal in all kinds of life, "to do" lists and such. I've often thought to myself that it would be such a cool thing to accomplish. And seriously, I had just finished a chapter about believing in yourself in the Success Principles and well a google search, a registration and a $90- receipt later, I'm all signed up to run the New Jersey Marathon at the Shore. Woo hoo.
I did my first day of "training" which isn't as fancy or Olympic-y official as it might sound. It really was alternating between one minute of running and one minute of walking on the treadmill for twenty minutes. Even a zaftig woman like myself can handle that.
So that's my story, I'm off to the races!
Keep you posted.
PS: I know, maybe I am becoming one of those crazy bloggy people. Oh well. I have a strange need for public scrutiny in order to stick to things... so I might as well blog about this too.
