A Week Out..The Point of No Return

My new KICKS!! They make my B-TT! look STRONG!!;)

I am almost a week out from running my first Half Mararthon!! I am starting to wonder if I have made the right decision?  There is so much going on in my life at the moment...there is always a lot going on in my life at any given moment.  I made the decision to add training for a Half Marathon to my to do list!!  I know that I will accomplish my goal one mile at a time, but I am still a bit apprehensive.

 I am really excited and too preoccupied to be excited all at the same time??  I know, I am baffled by what I just typed too??  I guess, what I am getting at is that it has been TOUGH!! Tough meeting up for group runs, then running home to ice, eat and hydrate only to run back out to a soccer game or tournament, church function, birthday party, music recital, fill in the blank and multiply by 3 children!!  I am near my wit's end with it all and I guess I am just ready to Run and Run some more!! Training is tough on its own without life thrown in.

  I am reminded to count my blessings and this life that is so hectic at the moment with or without training is so precious.  I am grateful for the great privilege to lace up my kicks and kick ASPHALT with the best of them.  Speaking of, this weekend I take on 12 miles, my longest run to date!! One step at a time, one mile at a time!! So, stay tuned for my update on how things go......
