I doubted myself and my ability to actually complete this half marathon thing all week. Okay, more than all week. I've been doubting it since I had the idea to do it. As you can see by this ticker - it's getting close to decision time.
I weighed all of the pros and cons. Con: I haven't been able to train like I wanted. Pro: I have a friend coming from Oregon to do this with me. Con: 13.1 Miles is a LONG way. Pro: If I finish, I can SAY I've finished and feel like I made a huge accomplishment. Con: I don't exactly have the right equipment (attire, shoes, etc). Pro: I can GET the right equipment.
Eff it. I signed up and forked over $75 to run/walk 13.1 miles on January 7, 2012.
Now I guess I need to get my butt into as good as shape as I can before then. I went to the gym last night - did just over 5 miles and felt great afterwards - but my hip was a little sore. I need to look into what that's all about and how to fix it. I think getting new shoes will definitely help.
So now I need a playlist! I normally listen to TMR, but I think 13.1 miles calls for some constant pumped up music - anyone have good suggestions?
