Well, can I get a drum roll please?????
I did it, I did it, I finally did it! I signed up for my very first half marathon EVER!
That is right ladies and gentleman (yes, gentleman singular...I think I might have one male reader if I'm lucky..hi Mike @ Try for Try!!) on Sunday September 26th I, along with 9, 499 other
crazy people runners will be hammering out 21 lovely kilometres for the glitz and the glory and the pure satisfaction of being able to say you did it (and having the medal to prove it!)
Ok, ok so I know I have talked about this before and I even went so far as to create a nifty training plan for it (if you want to refresh your memory click here) but now it is official. As in I paid my $90 non-refundable registration fee ($90! Ouch!!!!) As in they are probably printing my one of a kind race bib right now (ok maybe not...but never say never) As in I just told all of you and the Boyfriend and my running buddies and even my mama so I sure as hell can't back out now!
The crazy part is that a year ago I couldn't even run 2km without stopping and here I am, 12 months later, signing up for 13.1 (because you can't leave out the 0.1) miles! Even crazier then that is that I didn't just sign up to do it but I am totally going to freakin' do it!! If 2009 Sam knew me now she'd be so shocked and what's even better, so proud! And being able to make your former self proud, how awesome is that?
6.5 weeks and counting.....
So tell me, what would your 2009 self be surprised about or proud of today?
