I Have a Goal with an Actual End in Sight

It’s about 13 miles long.

Yeah, that’s right. I agreed to run in a half marathon, with my sister Karey, in June. Don’t ask me what the hell I was thinking when I agreed to this. I currently am able to run up to and including no miles, nonstop. Pathetic I know, especially considering that I am not overweight. I am just lazy.

There. I said it. Happy?!

Well, maybe lazy isn’t the right word. I would just rather enjoy the relaxing stretch of Marichyasana I, than a jog around the block. Or anything that causes my now water wing shaped bewbs (thanks Ollie!) to bounce around. However, I think that this challenge will be just the fire I need under my ass to get motivated with my life. I can only imagine the wonders it will do for my well being, emotionally and physically.

I start my training program on Monday, so I have four more days before the torture begins. Wish me luck. I will be periodically posting about my progress. We’ll have mini celebrations everytime I reach a new mini goal (2 miles, 5 miles, 7 miles, 10 miles). Maybe there will even be a prize involved. Who know? We’ll see.

  1. Good luck! That’s more of a commitment to running than I’d ever be willing to make. even at 6 miles an hour that’s over two hours!

  2. I couldn’t run even if I was being chased by an ax-wielding maniac, so I am already impressed by those who can. I also sort of think a marathon involving ax-wielding maniacs might be kind of interesting to watch!

  3. It is 13.1 miles, don’t forget that last .1! 🙂 I am so proud of you…it will be a great goal and you’ll have someone to do it with. I hope to accomplish that goal someday….can’t wait to hear about your progress!

  4. Good luck! The only running I do is after my son. I should put a pedometer on that kid and see how many miles we do each day. It’s great to have someone to train with. Don’t forget to stretch!!!
