So I like to exercise, and really always have done some form of exercise. Shortly after we got married we bought a treadmill, and 14 years later, she's still hummin! I was never a runner though, didn't have the endurance for it.
Over the last year I have started making more of an effort to run, I LOVE the way I feel when I'm done. Well, I love how I feel 30 minutes after I'm done running, because initially I feel like I'm dying. But seriously, it a total body workout. I still love to do my cardio dvd's, but nothing beats running.
So I've made a decision that in 2014 I am going to run a half marathon.
There, I said it. Which means that since it's out here now, I have to do it. Holy Schnit. My goal is to run Grandma's Half Marathon in Duluth in June. The down side of that is that it's a lottery, so we might not get picked, which would REALLY bum me out. I have my rooms booked, and someone to run with me, so I have to get picked, right? If we don't, I will find another one to run.
I have started my training, I am not following anything super fancy or scientific. I run 3 miles 4 days/week and then do a long run between 5-7 miles on the weekend. I've lost a few pounds, but am not looking for weight loss. I just want to tone this body up!
So there ya have it, wish me luck and pray I don't die.
