Half Marathon

So I have decided to run the Half Marathon. It will be almost exactly 1 year from the time my weight loss journey began. How PERFECT!! In a year I've gone from an overweight stay at home mommy, to a fit, healthy, running staying at home mommy. My goal isn't a time goal, my goal is to finish. A quote I found on Pinterest (my newest addiction) Dead last is greater than did not finish which trumps did not start. Absolutely perfect!!! It's not about the speed, it's about doing it!

I started training for the half yesterday. My longest run was 4 miles. I figured adding a mile a week would put me at 13 miles the week of the half. My girlfriend came over and we went running. Before the run I had mapped out 5 miles. We got to 4 and 1/2 miles and my friend said lets add a mile, lets do a 10k. I laughed and took off we ran 6.08 miles in a little over an hour. My goal for next week, yes while we are on vacation is to hit 7 miles.

Thanks to whoever introduced me to Pinterest....I am truly addicted, we are going to be doing so many crafts when it gets cold. Plus I may just decorate my house.

    That is so awesome :)

    As far as Pinterest is concerned I've been on for a little while and yes, it's addicting! I can't get enough :)
