My Journey to the Women's Half Marathon


I am not going to tell you that I love running.  I don't actually love it while it is happening, but I do LOVE the feeling of accomplishment and pride I feel when I am done. 

I just starting working out in January 2012. I have never run a race in my life. I actually remember thinking that people who run must be crazy because I hated running. I did my first 5K in March and I was hooked. 

I never would have believed you in January if you had told me that I would be running a half marathon. I think I would have actually told you that you needed to seek help! I thought 3.1 miles was long enough.

When I started working out in January, one of my trainers, Jess, was getting ready to run a half marathon. I was so impressed. I jokingly said to her, "I will totally run one of those by the end of this year!" I didn't realize that I had already begun my "FitBucket List." 

Now here's the craziest part, I am going to cross of the first item on my fitbucket list on Nov. 18. I am officially registered as of this afternoon!!!! There is no backing out now.  And the icing on the cake is that I am going to be sharing my story with you all as an Ambassador of Good Health representing the Lady's Speed Stick Women's Half Marathon! (Someone should go tell my old self that one too! There is no way I could have ever seen this coming!)

I have been training for this half for a couple of months now. I will fill you in on my training plan next time! 

I am going to be doing a giveaway: Come run "WHM St. Pete" with Mindy!

  13. For example, I want to lose 5 pounds of fat by
    February 25th. The second option is to use headphones as you probably did
    at the gym in the past. The problem is that many do not
    follow through with their fitness plans and thus fail within the first 3 months of starting a new fitness
    plan or routine.
