Half Marathon!

I made a very bold statement to Charlie and Dan over the weekend. I straight up told them that I will run the marathon with them next year. When I said this, I was caught up in excitement. A few days have now passed, and my mind has returned back to its sensible state. Having said that, my sensible mind told me to register for the San Jose Rock & Roll Half Marathon in October. That gives me two months to prepare for 13.1 miles. I can do this. I believe in myself and I will not allow myself to give up. I don't care if I am the last one limping across the finish line, I will do what I can to finish the race in 4 hours.

I started my training today. I "ran" 3 miles in 40 minutes. I put quotes around the word "ran" because I did what I consider to be a run, which is a jog/walk. Perhaps a better term to would be "jalked." Maybe "wogged?" Either way, it doesn't matter, as long as I am out here getting my heartbeat up and doing my best. This is going to be intense, but I'm in it all the way!
