Six Months til Race Day!

June 1, 2012...exactly 6 months til my very first half marathon!  While I'm only in my first official week of training and only running two miles right now, I'm so super pumped!  Week one has been going well.  Memphis even got a break from the ridiculously hot weather, which made running even more awesome. 

Since signing up for a half marathon pretty much means I'm married to running for the next six months I actually went out and bought real running clothes.  I feel so legit now!  Let me just say, it is hard to find real running clothes for bigger people.  Reebok is about the only line I could find clothes to really fit me well.  So I think even when I'm a professional marathoner and super skinny, I'm totally going to endorse them.  ;)

I'm in the process now of finding some good cross-training for when I'm not running.  I've read that yoga is really good.  What kind of cross-training do y'all do?

I still can't believe I'm doing this.  It's so unlike me.  But how does the saying go?  "If you always do what you've done, you'll always get what you've gotten."  And I'm not willing to settle for that.  I'm still so nervous, but so SO excited!  I can't wait to finish the race and then read this blog from the beginning.  How fun will that be??
