Running Running Running

I was in a really good groove... I ran my race and I was ready to stay on top of it.

Then I lost it. I just keep feeling like I'm too busy and I don't have time.
I need to make time.

So I finally got Rob on my side to help motivate me.
Okay, so I'm a week in. But I've been running or doing weights every day.

My half marathon is 114 days away from today. Ummm... 4 1/2 months seems crazy to go from where I'm at now to being able to run 13.1 miles.

But I'm going to do it.

I want to do it!

I used to not even be able to run 1/4 of a mile. I'm consistently running around 3 miles each day with a long run on the weekends. Of course - a lot of my training has been on the treadmill [or all of it]. So its not quite as realistic but I will use it until its warm enough to head outside.

I never thought I would be able to run 3 miles without stopping! Even letting myself get out of shape and having to get back in hasn't been as bad this time.

Its a lot of work and I don't want to have to go through it again. I'm determined to keep going so that I can finish my half marathon. I just need to make it in under 3 hours.

I probably won't ever do another one again - talk to me after the race.

Rob's words are that its not natural to run even more than one mile and I'm crazy. So I have to motivate him to motivate me to run.

My hope would be that when school starts back up I can wake up just a little bit early to run. I like my sleep though and it hasn't happened yet.
