Ooops I did it again… A.C Half Marathon here I come

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Due to my foot injury I could not take part in several 5k & 10K events that I wanted to participate in. I am now pretty much healed up. So I'm ready to start again. The only stipulation right now, is NO SAND, think Seaside Insane Inflatable Disaster, and to have orthopedics made for my sneakers to support my arch.

I really do seem to do better when I have a very specific goal to work towards. I completed my first half marathon in August 2014. I have now registered for the Half Marathon in Atlantic City being held in April. Appropriately titled April Fools.

emoticon It's funny when I think of people who participate in Half Marathon's I don't think of me. I think of people who are in prime physical health, I don't think of people like me, those of us who are trying to get there. But I guess thats exactly how I have to think. It's all in the company I keep I guess. Hang out with physically fit, healthy people, something just might rub off. I'm really working hard on the mental part of this, that has been the toughest part to change.

emoticon Here's the dirt. I must finish within 4 hours. My time in August was 5 hours and 49 seconds. So I have some work to do. But that's what the next couple of months will be for.

emoticon I have signed up, my partner in crime, my Godchildren's father's to come with. You know you have a true friend, when you can just sign them up for a Half Marathon emoticon

This is going to be one of those things that haunt me. It's just one of those moments that I need to say been there done that, and hopefully it will be out of my system.

emoticon My goal to Start and to Finish. That's it. Simple and pure. Don't care about time, form, statistics, other than cross the finish line, and do the happy dance at the end

    Good for you! You have time to prepare. Glad you'll have company, too. That makes it LESS easy to change your mind.

    Good luck! Rooting for you. PROUD of you.
