No Backing Out Now...
That day was important to me because I finally broke through my mental barrier and was able to realize that I had much more in me than I knew. I could actually start doing it. And loving it! So, it's become something I've loved. Tory ran the Salt Lake Half Marathon almost 2 weeks ago. Watching her, as well as all the other athletes was really inspiring. I knew when I saw them pumping across the finish line that I wanted to accomplish that this year. I wanted to run a half marathon. So, I started searching for marathons in the summer that I could potentially do. I wanted to give myself plenty of time so I could be ready enough that I wasn't the last one across the finish line. I decided to shoot for the Top of Utah Half Marathon in Logan in August. I mapped out my training program and have been keeping up on it pretty well. The only setback is the stupid weather. I am really excited but I had this nagging feeling that I might let something talk to me out of it in the future. So, I decided to remedy that situation. About 20 minutes ago, I registered for the race. There's no backing out now... I feel totally freaked out and yet really excited. I never thought I'd be doing this. I know this may not seem like a grand goal to a lot of people. But it's a big deal to me. I'm finally going to achieve something great!! And thank you, Tory, for believing I could do it and helping me get into it more. Hopefully you've helped me into something I can continue to get better at. Here we go, time for training!! ah!!! :)
