Registered for my first marathon! Cellcom, Green Bay WI 5/15/11

Monday, October 04, 2010

I just registered for the Green Bay Cellcom Marathon May 15th, 2011. Wow , this is a BIG step but I believe I have the time to prepare and certainly the will. It is scary in a way but also in a way, I have a quiet confidence that I can do it and this is nothing more than a celebration of what i have already accomplished.

I guess you dont realize how far you have come until you look over your shoulder. Its been a long journey and it is not over yet.

Were just gettin' started BABY!!!

    That is awesome. My next goal is the 1/2 but the only one in my area before the end of the year is in Seattle. I haven't decided if I am ready for the hills. I might just train and pick one to sign up for next year (:

    You DO have time! Look how far you've coma and what you've accomplished so far!
You are brave and I love your determination! I had a thought this past summer....as I worked my 90minutes swimm (whatever style got me from A to B was cool LOL) there was a swimming marathon one day...I thought...wouldn't it be GREAT if I entered next year! It wouldn't matter if I came in last...just the thought of making it was ...welll.... super cool! I imagined people who matter to me being so very proud of me...and myself being proud of me... Who knows...I also have time, it's just that winter is no swimming time on the island (unless there's a pool I don't know about nearby hehe
Keep rocking this!!!!! emoticon

    That is awesome. I think I could probably do it if I tried, but I don't know if I have the guts to sign up for one. You, however, are very strong and courageous and I know you can do it. I'm already looking forward to your race report!

    I am so excited for you. Now - the real nerves will kick in these next 7 months - don't let them hold you back - You've GOT this brother!

This is a big step in the right direction.

Find a program that will fit into your schedule - so that it isn't overwhelming and stick to it!

You are going to ROCK this!

I can't wait to compare training and eventually marathon stories with you! WooHoo!
