When You Wish...

upon a star

I cannot wait for our trip to the states.  While in Florida we'll be visiting that magical place & I'll hopefully be running my first half marathon.  I have patellar tendinits "jumper's knee" & hope it will heal in time to allow me to run.  Training for this marathon has been quite a journey for me.  Every weekend I completed a long run I would be so amazed that I did it.  I have not been a runner for quite some time (think grade school).   My short runs are 2-3 miles & I've run as far as 8 which is my personal best.  I can't believe that I'm a runner!

So for now, I'll sit & wait.  I've trained enough that I know I can finish 13.1 miles & finish in the allotted time.  It is so huge that I actually believe I can do it.  That Bus of Shame has been such a motivator to keep me training & hopefully it will be behind me.
