1/21/09 - Thank you to all of you who have donated or given me encouragement and words of wisdom! We haven't officially started our training but almost everyone I know that has done a half marathon or full marathon insisted I start running NOW! So, I've started running!
I mostly run on the treadmill because for one, it is darn cold here in Dallas and two, I am scare to run outside for fear I will run to a spot and be too tired to run back!
It was a beautiful day this past Sunday though and I had missed yoga class already so I decided to put on my running shoes and hit the road. I went down to the lake and ran what I thought was a long distance. It turned out not to be, only about a mile and a half but it was good practice. The wind around the lake makes it more difficult too, or at least that is what I am going to tell myself!
My next goal is to run at least 2 miles around the lake. Some day I will run the full 9 mile lap and maybe start from the house, that would make it about 15 miles.
