Wanna Be, I Think
Hello, Marathon Mommies! I am Suzie Petunia's cousin-in-law and a frequent reader of this blog. I am also a wanna be runner, I think. I am addicted to my Nike+ for my iPod, a gift from my husband for my 10th wedding anniversary at the end of August. I started following a walking/running training log on Sept. 3 and hit the 100 mile mark this weekend. I have now set my sights on joining Suzie's challenge to run the half marathon in Salt Lake. But I am terrified! I run on a treadmill most of the time--in fact I prefer it. Will training like this be adequate? I am up to running five miles without walking, can I really do 13? Will I finish last? I have quite a few pounds to lose, will I accomplish my weight loss goals in time? Will I injure myself? As a three-sport high school athlete, I never questioned what I was capable of doing....I just set goals and accomplished them. What has happened to me?
