WHAT Have I Done?????
I deferred my registration for the IMT Des Moines Marathon I registered for last year so I am already signed up for it in October and I have NOT been good about getting back to exercising. Half marathon training plans are 12 weeks long and this is only 10 1/2 weeks away.... UGH
Well - this is it - time to get serious. Come June 1st Sherri will be running - or most likely running/jogging/walking a 20K. I can't believe I'm doing this again. My reward will be this:
Another finisher medal. But really my reward will be much greater - I will be healthier in every aspect. Getting out and running is so good for me physically, but it also helps my mental and spiritual state in so many ways. It is an awesome time to spend time in God's creation, listening to praise music, listening to the birds sing, praying... Ahhhh.... even though it is frigid out now (someone needs to tell Mother Nature TODAY is the first day of SPRING!!!) it will warm up and maybe since it is staying cold longer it won't be too hot on June 1st.... I can only hope! I'm all registered so now I just need to start putting one foot in front of the other and get moving!!!
Running the race to the finish,
