The past few hours have been a whirlwind of emotions.
Last time I left you I was so excited about the possiblity of signing up for the half marathon in DC.
Not only was it on sale, but I would be able to see my friends!!!
In the end, I wasnt able to sign up. At least not at this time. Unfortuantly, that is the weekend I work. And considering it is St Patricks Day weekend, it will be very difficult to trade with someone. I also found that I would proably spend about $ 500 at least for the trip.
And although I could probably find a trade, I don’t know if I will have that amount of money saved up, just for “fun”.
So my excitement, immediately went to sadness and guilt that I was letting my friends down.
Well after MANY emails with Tiffany and Angie, I realized that they weren’t mad that I couldn’t make it.
But we started planning WHAT we COULD do!
And thats when Tiffany signed up for the FULL marathon HERE in st louis!!!! I was so excited again (like I said. Lots of emotions haha)
Well……………Im taking the plung. I signed up for my FIRST FULL marathon.
didnt I just say a few months ago, Im NEVER do a full. Ever. Who would ever do that? how would I find time? I barely have time to train for a half?
Instead. I said screw it and I did it! Ive been in all sorts of races, and all distances. Some I have loved, others not so much. But I am determined to finish this race.
but then again. ask me next summer. The full isn’t until next October. Plenty of time to train right??? haha
This week I have actually been really proud of the fact that I have been moving my body!
After work on Friday, I completed Jillian Michael’s Yoga video. And then Saturday I went to the gym and ran on the treadmill for 30 minutes. Usually, after work I go home and sit. and eat. But I am desperately trying to lose weight before “marathon training” begins.
(I hope I can keep up this motivation!)
