Training for the half marathon has begun.
No more laughing no more fun.
If you slow or break your run
You will pay the consequences
(adapted from "Chinese School")
I have been able to pretend that it wasn't really coming. Just something I was still talking about doing. Then Monday hit. Monday was the official start date on training. If I am going to be able to train in time, that was the last possible time to start.
So, I started off "lite" with 3 miles. ...it only gets bigger from here. *GULP*.
Actually, today is two miles - but I have found the second day is always a little harder - even if it is less. But - we have started. I am excited and nervous at the same time. As I was running yesterday I kept thinking, "No one is going to run this one with me" because everyone who said they would hadn't signed up yet. But last night Marissa informed me that she signed up! So I am excited that I will at least have someone who can get me to the right place at the right time to start the race (let's be honest, I have NEVER paid attention to where I need to be on race day - someone always does that for me).
Anyway - wish me luck.
