week 1, day 1...

I've been a runner pretty much my whole life. It's always been the one thing that came easily to me and I loved doing. I started in 5th grade and ran through college. Then I stopped. Just completely stopped and I am still so mad at myself for it. I don't know if I had just had enough, or I was busy working, starting a family, etc. I could make excuses all day, but I'm done.

I am so excited that I have officially registered for my first Half Marathon!! I figured if I just took the plunge and registered I would HAVE to do it, right? (I'm not one to lose money!)

I started my 12 week training plan today, it was only a "stretch & strengthen" day so I'd say it went well. :)

I am going to post here and there about my progress (and hopeful weight loss!), I think this will help me stick to it.

Wish me luck, 12 weeks till RACE DAY!

Sara,

that is so awesome! looking forward to your progress..I really want to know how you do it..I was never a runner- tried it for a few weeks and was amazed that I actually ran straight thru for a couple miles but for some reason I never stuck to it. I do, however workout with weights at least 4 times a week- always have-someday I will be blogging about that. I am starting to blog more and really liking it....just put a new one out today..let me know what u think.
How did u find the marathon and do u have a trainer or do they just advise u what to do?
keep going! get strong!
