HUGE Event 17 Weeks Away!

Monday, January 13, 2014

Don't know what I was thinking but I did it AGAIN, I've signed up for the Hippie Chick Half Marathon! Last year was my first year doing it and after an injury impacted my training I had to change to the quarter marathon at the last moment. I walked it, finished it and beat the time I had set for myself.

This year my sisters are doing it "with" me. My older sister, Nat-Again, lost 90 lbs and has been crazily, physically active for the past year. She ran a half-marathon that was on a trail with crazy steep hills. She's quite the inspiration! We are all at different levels so we'll be there supporting each other but won't be right next to one another.

The "Peace" Chick on my background is the logo for this year's run.

I have a walking training plan that is a 12 week program, same one I used last year. So right now I have 5 weeks to focus on losing some weight and get back into the routine of walking before I get started.

Actually, thank goodness I signed up for this event. I think it will be the kick in the rear I need to get going again.

    Good for you! There is nothing like a new goal to keep you motivated, and you have the added bonus of doing it with your sisters. So happy for you!
