A change or two on the half

I posted (or think i did) a few days ago about t2 signing us up for the musuem of aviation half on 14 Jan. Well, t2 forgot that he will be in FL that weekend and well, it is really hard to run a half from 400 miles away. And they won't refund his money. So, I asked Ms Bakes Alot if she would like to participate in his place. Not run, just participate. Cause I knew she would say no if i told her she had to run the whole thing. Heck, I'm not even feeling good on my chances of running the whole thing. But I am feeling good on my chances of fininshing the whole thing. That I am sure of . I will finish. And I will get my finishers medal. And I will promenantely place it next to my First Jump certificate from skydiving. And then I will be happy. But not as happy as I will be in June when I finish the Rock n Roll marathon. Yep, I'll be pretty happy.

Speaking of happy...I've been enjoying alot of happiness lately. I guess sometimes it's just about time to be happy...and now is my time. Not sure if it's the running or because a certain someone makes me happee (as in a pee-worthy moment). But whatever it is, i'm glad that i'm happy.

Training is going well. my biggest downfall is letting the 8 trillion things that i have to do get in my way. 2007 will be the year that i deobligate myself from everything that i don't have a direct interest in (ie, the only thing I will be doing is running another marathon and going to grad school...nothing else). And no, I didn't make a typo on 2007...I've already obligated myself to too much for 2006...and it hasn't even started...

Oh well, I'm off...plans for the weekend 1) run 2) pack and move 3) have a great New Years!

Since I will be moving I am doubting that I will post again until next week, so I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Years!

Hey! As long as you finish the same day you start...there should be no problems! :)

Work on the interval ratio for the half...Run 5 Minutes...walk 1...see how that works for you. You may find you'll have the energy to run all the running parts! :)

I think finishing a half marathon no matter how you do it is a great accomplishment! Many people in this country don't even get off the couch. And I am also happiest when I am running and pushing my limits as I am constantly discovering that I can do more than I ever thought I could. Yay!
