"Fitness is a stage you pass through on the way to becoming a racer." - Dr. George Sheehan
I made up my mind this weekend on what it was that I actually want to accomplish. I would like by November 25th to run a half Marathon, not because it is Thanksgiving but because its my birthday. I would like to be able to say, "Before I turned 38 I ran a Half Marathon!" I think that would be a pretty cool birthday present to me from me haha! :-)
I realize alot of things need to change. I started researching running charts to get you started on the right path to do that. I was surprised at how many days there wern't much running. That does not make sence to me but they are the professionals, right? I hope so. However, I did run today :-)
I also realize there are other fitness type things I need to do outside running, cross trainging. Haven't quite explored that area yet. I know one thing, I know I have ultra weak arms!! Maybe start there, lift weights or something? I'll do more research.
But ya, I need to get my body into shape so I can do this Marathon well. I don't want to do it and just do it. I want to do it well, the best within me. I think I can pin point when.... suddenly, snap! I loved running! I run as much as my body will let me. I just run. Now, I'm going to run with intent. And that is training to run really well for a half marathon, before I turn 38 years old :-)
