I like to run. I never used to. In fact I would whine (albeit quietly) when my swim coach wanted to add laps to our dry land workouts. Hated it. Hated them. Hate.
So, on the cusp of turning 30, I decided I wanted to start to run. Looking back, I am not sure why. Perhaps I started thinking about the things I wanted to accomplish in my life... my bucket list. I decided I wanted to run in a marathon. Fast forward a few years...
First, I came to my senses: I decided a half would be adequate. Really... 26 miles? That is insane.
Anyway - I have made it my goal this year, a mere few years before I hit my next age milestone (29 again, of course) to accomplish this task. I have selected a race. I have found the website. I have checked the date with my husband. They even have kid fun run races while I am running...
I have not registered.
Why is it that my heart is beating out of my chest just TO REGISTER! YIKES.
I have given myself a deadline to register. I will and can do this. I am week 3 into my training, so I know I can do it physically (I mean really - they give you 3.5 hours to complete the race - I could walk fast and do it in that time) It is just squeezing the trigger.
If I wait until everything is lines up perfectly, I may just miss this opportunity and kill my goal. Is this what I want?
