I did something crazy this Sunday. I signed up for my first half marathon. Eek! I’m excited and nervous; I’ve wanted to do this for a long time. I started running almost two years ago, ran for about two months and then found out I was pregnant with Abby girl. I was placed on bedrest for eight weeks and not able to run the rest of my pregnancy. I started back up a few weeks after she was born last April and have run off and on since then.
I had a dream the other night where I was dying; one of my final thoughts was “I’ll never get to run a half marathon.” Pathetic? Maybe a little. But it kicked me into gear and inspired me to stop dreaming about it and go for it!
So I’m officially signed up for my first half marathon; May 19th. My hubby thought I was a bit crazy for trying to do it in 2 1/2 months, but two of my good friends were super encouraging. I’m excited and nervous; looking forward to see how my body responses and loving the quiet time while I run. I did 4.75 miles on Saturday and then 3 miles this morning brr, it was 24 degrees! May 19th and sunny, warmer weather… here I come!
