I just joined a new group for half marathon support and one goal was to create this blog entry on why I'm challenging myself with a half marathon this year.
I did walk/jog a half marathon last year and the sense of accomplishment was pretty amazing. But even given that, I wasn't so sure I'd do another one. It's a pretty big time commitment.
But there is one in Green Bay in May. My brother-in-law decided to do the full marathon, my sister is going to do the half marathon. They inspired my daughter to join in and I sort of got caught up in the excitement. The race is actually on my 44th birthday. I gave a little thought to what my birthday would be like if I did or didn't do it. I will go either way to support my family and how would I feel on the sidelines. I really loved that feeling of accomplishment and am sure I would absolutely miss it if I was just a spectator.
So new goal for 2010, a PR in a half marathon!
