“The Miracle isn’t that I Finished, The Miracle is that I had the Courage to Start”

Here We Go!

Here we go with a new adventure for 2011. Blogging!  For someone who has never even journaled before I am feeling excited, nervous, and scared all at the same time.  Kind of like going into labor for the first time.  Well I have just birthed Running Half Crazy and let me tell ya it took about 8 hours to set up. I am exhausted!   I am hoping that by writing down my progress as I train it will keep me motivated to push myself to the next level and hold me accountable and possibly inspire anyone who reads this. I will be running 2 half marathons this year along with some 5k's and 10k's.  I have been on the couch since my last half, The Las Vegas Rock n Roll Half  on 12-5-2010. This was the first race that I ran my 5k and 10k faster then usual and I was feeling strong. Thought for sure a PR was in the works and then at mile 8.5 I hit a wall and really had to push myself to finish.  Thankfully I did. I came home and did some sole searching and found that running is a part of me that I don't want to lose. Now it's time to get my butt off the couch and get back to running.  Boy I have missed it.  Well I say that now.  I will let you know tomorrow when I actually venture out.  Remember to always be training for some race; somewhere, someday... Happy New Year!

Way to go! This is great. We all run in to that wall that wants us to quit. Great that you recognize it for what it is and push it away to get back out there! Good Luck!
