T.S. Eliot

Today I made the scariest most exciting decision of my life deciding to go ahead and officially register for the half marathon I plan to do! In case you don’t remember my goal is to run a half marathon before my 30th birthday on June 14, 2011. The event I have chosen is called the Downhill @ Dawn Half Marathon in Ridgecrest, NC on June 5th, 2011. There was a race a few weeks earlier here in the city I live in but it was all on trails, where I can so see myself tripping on a root and getting hurt lol…besides the one I choose will be a beautiful race. The North Carolina Mountains are gorgeous!!! 

I am so excited, scared, nervous, determined to do this. I decided to go ahead and register now because I needed it to be official and know that I cant just change my mind or back out …the registration fee is non-refundableSmile. I need the deadline to be official and it helped that I had the money to actually pay my fee right now hehe Winking smile

The past week or two I have felt myself getting off track, again. I have been going through a lot of emotions and ups and downs. The self-doubt has been creeping back in and this will give me some perspective again. It’s not just about loosing weight or even just getting healthy, this journey is about a better me. It is about doing things I never thought I could do before and would never have even considered trying before. Will it be easy..no..will I want to give up…probably many times but im determined not to even if I have to crawl across that finish line!


Peace, Love and Happy Blogging
