I am back to blogging again, work has been crazy busy along with training for my first ever half marathon in March! But, taking this picture of all of my run gear really proves to me that I can officially call myself a runner. I feel amazing, my legs burn everyday BUT I know it will all be worth it when I cross that finish line. I have no high hopes of a goal time, I just want to cross the finish line without stopping for 13.1 miles. I am nervous/excited/tired/sore/proud and I know that I will have all of those same emotions on race day.
This weekend, my employees and I cheered at the Austin Marathon/Half Marathon in Austin, TX. It was so inspiring standing at mile 7 seeing all of the dedicated runners pass by, I was moved and I think I am more motivated on my runs now since seeing that inspiration. Running is truly a blessing, and I feel elite saying that I am running in a half marathon this year. I used to swear that I'd never run farther than three miles, and look at me now. I ran 8 miles this morning. It was tough. But, I did it, and I feel AWESOME!
More blogging to come! Happy Belated Valentine's Day and Happy Presidents Day! :)
