My first half marathon.
I just signed up to run in my first half marathon (13.1 miles). The race takes place on March 21, 2010. The past six months have been a real struggle for me and running has become my release. It's where I can just get it all out. Even though I really have to motive myself sometimes to just go out and run or even find the time to just go out and run, I'm so happy and satisfied I did the minute my ipod starts and my foot hits the ground.
not only to get a great physical workout, but to get all the "stuff" out of my head. It's like I'm sweating it all out. When I run it's my time. I'm in my own world and in that world I decide what I think about. I love that feeling. So I signed up for the race as a celebration of getting all the "stuff" out. It also marks my first year of living in Atlanta, GA.
I am so excited and ready to face the challenges, feel the comfort, and embrace this journey...and I'll be documenting it all in this blog.
