Well, it's official! On December 30th I signed up for The Shamrock 1/2 Marathon in VA Beach, VA. I will be running 13.1 miles on Sunday morning, March 22, 2009. I can't believe it, I'm terribly nervous about it but getting less and less.
I'm staying faithful to my training. My longest run to date was this weekend and it was 9 miles. Each time I run one of these I am practically in SHOCK! It's amazing when you actually think that in August I couldn't even run 2 minutes at a time! I've lost 46 pounds since June and 21 of that after I started running. I am about 4 dress size smaller than when I started this journey! I still have more I want to loose but it's coming off and I'm not discouraged, don't feel deprived, and don't hate running! That is amazing to me!
Think of me the next couple of months as I continue to prepare! This is SO exciting and I never thought this would be me!
