I AM BACK! TRAINING FOR MY FAVORITE DISTANCE - 13.1 MILES

I have needed something to kick me into training harder so on Christmas Day I signed up for a half marathon on April 12, 2015! I AM STOKED!!
I love 13.1 miles - long enough to get into stride (unlike a 5K), a stretch for my conditioning and always ends in a medal. YES. The next 4 months are going to be a challenge both mentally and physically, but I am ready for it. I need it right now. I physically need to know that I can get back in half-marathon shape and complete the darned thing. ...

Other Information:
"What is your secret to the weight loss, they all want to know; in a thousand different ways they wanted to know The Secret. And not one of them is ever prepared, truly prepared, to believe that it has nothing so much to do with chemicals , wacky diets and zippy mental tricks as with the most profound and sometimes heartrending process of removing, molecule by molecule, the very tough rubber that comprised the bottom of my training shoes. The more molecules that I remove , the more weight I lose; it is that simple"

Good morning and WOW! I'm so impressed with your fitness minutes for the month!!! You are doing great with getting it in!! My goal was for 1500 minutes this month, so far, I have 555. Yeah, I'm a little behind schedule, but, I'm going to try to get as close as possible. I'll be happy with that! Have a great week! emoticon

I had to chuckle at your observation about "The Secret" being removing the rubber on the bottom of your training shoes molecule by molecule! I am going to enjoy thinking about that tomorrow when I work on that very project. And I am also inspired that your fitness level helped you recover more quickly from surgery. My father had a similar experience with healing from surgery when he was in his early 80's. He walked several miles almost daily, and it made such a difference. Anyways, thanks for the new thought nugget!

LOL @ the boots!! That's part of my one step at a time, one step a day theme! I plan on changing the background quite often with pics of my favorite shoes and boots! Have a great day!
