Chapter 2 page 48 - what do you think about . . . .

If you missed my page 47 entry - please be sure to check it out. More info about the Girls' Night Out event will be coming as more details become available.

I have a question -
What do you think about me jogging/walking a 1/2 marathon in September?

I admit that I get a bit delusional - I can easily do 3 miles, and probably with some challenge 6 miles, so in my head - I can do 13.1 - but . . . .

There is another summer training program called "Summer Striders" starting June 1 and going through August 31. It meets on Tuesdays from 7-8:00 p.m. with the goal of walking a 10K.

In addition to this training opportunity, I have a new jogging training partner starting this week. We're going to try to train at least once a week - she's done 1/2's before and it will definitely be something we discuss during our training on Thursday. I'm soooo excited to have someone to jog/walk with - you all know how bad I am at doing it alone!!!!!!!!!!!! I just HATE it alone - too bad, the weather has been spectacular.

So, I'm serious. What do you think about me jogging/walking a 1/2 marathon in September??? Am I crazy? 'Cuz I think I might be.

How did this crazy thought process come about??? Good question. I had been thinking seriously about training to jog the entire 10K in September (something I think I could probably easily train to do). My normal training partner suggested that we walk/jog the 10 Mile race in September. Well - if she thinks we could do the 10 Mile race, then what is 3 more miles and let's just do the 1/2. Yep - that sounds as crazy when I type it as it does when I think it to myself. Hmmm!

I am easily, and regrettably, 100 pounds overweight - though I would feel far more amazing about myself if I could lose 50 and I would probably call it a day if I could lose 75 pounds. I'm thinking that setting such a high goal would force me to commit to training which would be pretty serious calorie burning especially as the mileage increases.

Seriously - what do you think?

Have a great rest of a rainy weekend!
