I run to be ..... Nike's Women's Marathon 10.16.11

Ok so this is not craft related, but I am VERY excited about it.  After much encouragemnet and trying to become more active (and loose the extra pounds along the way) I have signed up for my firs HALF marathon. I know it's not a full one, but hey I want to set up a realistic goal so half a marathon with 6 months to train should be very doable and get me (lazy butt) off the couch.

I am on my 3rd week of trainning and have gone from a couch potato to running 3-4 times a week. I still cannot do a full run on my 2mile intro run, but I have have improved my running time by 3 minutes in just 3 weeks!! (considering my first run was more of a 2 mile walk ha ha). The only bad thing here is that this marathon is done by random drawing. You register between today and April 22. They do a random drawing by the end of the month to choose the participants. So I will keep running and pretend I am IN but I should know for sure by the end of the month.

The motto is I RUN TO BE ... (fill in the blank)... what would you run for?


  1. OMG....a half marathon. FANTASTIC! I'm still going to Y and building up stamina on the elliptical. Girl, you are way beyond me and at least 25 years younger...haha I am on your cheering squad. Good luck!

  2. I'm not sure exactly why but this blog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I'll check
    back later and see if the problem still exists.
