In my quest to get healthy and fit for myself and my family I have recently started the adventure of running.
Yes, I am attempting to become a runner. One of those people who can run incredibly long distances and make it look easy.
That’s what I want to do.
How in the world do I plan to accomplish this?
First off, I am getting up and I am getting out there. I am running. So far so good I guess. Some days I am proud of myself for running the small distance I ran. I mean, we all have to start somewhere right? Other days I am thinking ” What in the world am I doing? I suck at this!”
To push myself even further in this challenge, I have decided to make a commitment.
I am committed to running the San Antonio Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon on November 13, 2011 with my friend Shelley from Slightly Off Kilter.This run also benefits the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Foundation.
Yes. We are insane.
I am scared. I am excited. This is one of the biggest things I have ever tried to do in my life. Failure is not a option and that is the part that scares me the most. I can not fail at this. I wont.
So, my question for you guys is how can I make sure that I do not fail at this? What steps should I take to make sure I run this half marathon and I kick its ass? I will need your guidance and support to get this done.
