|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......
