So i've thought about it, and i have decided to walk the half-marathon. My mom and my sister will most likely be jogging/running the marathon. SO i may be doing it by myself!
If any of you are interested in walking with me, definitely feel free :) Your verbal and textual support is always appreciated and encouraged.
At this moment, what my current pace is-- i will be cutting it short to finish 13.1 miles in 4 hours. Even if i come in at right at 4 hours, I'll still be getting a Medal!!! How freaking excited, right?!?!
So over the next 21 weeks i'll be working on training, getting shape, increasing my pace-- along with finishing school, graduating, studying for NCLEX-PN, doing my 100 miles challenge for October and doing the HOT 100 challenge! And then there's also moving to Austin, packing, finding a place to live, and getting settled! WHOA BABY! There's a busy few months coming up! But i'm so excited. I feel that my heart is in the right place, and going in the right place and the right direction.
I also need to work on my Half-Marathon playlist for my ipod. Suggestions also recommended.
I am just so excited for this. Never in the past 7 years have i thought this is something i could do, and complete! This is huge. I have faith in myself, and i believe that this is something i can complete, and will do well. I know that i have what i need to get prepared and train for this race. What a gift to myself! I will wear that medal proudly for days following the Half-Marathon :)
stay tuned tomorrow, for HOT 100 update!
Ca C'est Bon!
Papa Red-- This one's for you!
