Disney here I come!

Its official, today I registered for the Disney’s Princess ½ Marathon!!!!!   Now it’s time to put in the real work.  No more playing around for me.  I must confess…I haven’t been training like I should have but now all of that is going to have to change if I plan on completing the race in 3:30:00.  The race is scheduled for February 27, 2011 which means that I have less than 15 weeks to prepare.  Keep in mind that I have never done anything like this before. (What in the hell am I thinking?  I must be trying to kill myself right?)  The year 2011 for me is all about living the life that I have always dreamed about and completing a marathon/half marathon is on that life list.  I would be lying to myself if I said that I wasn’t a tad bit nervous…okay let me stop, the truth is I am downright scared but at the same time I am extremely excited.  Does that even make any sense?  I just printed off a beginning runners program designed by Jeff Galloway that breaks down the training in 22 weeks…I need to somehow figure out how I can complete this program in just  15 weeks….hummmmm.  Is this even possible?  Whether it’s possible or impossible doesn’t really matter at this point, I have signed up for this race and my main goal is to simply complete it within the maximum time allowed.  So enough blogging…it’s time for me to lace up my running shoes and hit the pavement because I’ve got some running to do!

    You can do it! You’ll find that once you can do three miles, five miles comes pretty easy, and then seven miles comes pretty easy after that…and then nine…you get the drift.
    Go girl!
