I need this poster...giant size...now!
I committed to running a half marathon (yes, that's 13.1 miles)
next month which is something that wasn't on
ANY bucket list I may have made!
The bad news is that I have not been disciplined in my training.
Life was challenging this summer and I didn't rise to the challenge the way that I would have hoped.
I am heavier than I have been,
and my cardio-vascular resembles...
well, I can't even think of
something to compare it to!!
I am scared.
Yet, I realize that I can use that fear as a motivator.
I still have time to prepare...
watching my eating habits,
preparing my ipod song list,
finding cute running clothes that make my butt and belly look half their size....
You know....The important stuff!!
On a more serious note, I am running to raise money for the
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The program is called Team In Training, and this group has been a fantastic support system.
My Honored Hero is the sweet, brave son of one of my dearest friends.
So although I'm stressed and afraid it is nothing compared to what he lived with for years.
I may be crazy.
In fact, as I try to step on that tread mill this morning
I KNOW I'm crazy!
But I've lost my mind for a wonderful cause.
Now I need to find a spot to hang this giant size poster!!
