Now I've Gone & Done It

It's official, I'm off my rocker.  Why?  I've signed up for a half-marathon!  Yes, I've only just completed my third 5k but somehow I felt the pull to do more, to really push myself.  Actually, I've felt the tugging on my heart for awhile but wasn't brave enough to admit it.  Slowly, I put feelers out there to friends/family that have run a half, but always with a "maybe someday" caveat attached.  Today I decided to put my money where my mouth is and sign the dotted line. 

I'm giving myself 15 weeks to train and prepare.  Oddly enough, I feel like most the workouts need to go on in my brain - the mere idea of running 13.1 miles is a bit daunting.  As nervous as I am, I'm also really excited.  My workout schedule will be posted, with progress reports along the way.  Wish me luck!
