But...my ultimate goal for this month is pushing my body to run longer and farther. I have always had a half marathon on my bucket list but never believed that I could actually accomplish this. I've been running since the spring of 2011 (Check out how I started here) but I've started and stopped and never been totally committed. But the last 6 months there has not been a single week that I did not run...so now I actually consider myself a runner.
This month is my test...I have a half marathon in mind...the Cowtown Marathon in Fort Worth. And I have looked up a 16 week training program which I'm two weeks into. If I can make the 7 mile run on December 1 then I'm signing up and committing to the Cowtown (anyone want to join me?).
This means I will run my longest distances ever, push my body to it's limit and be so stinkin proud of myself. The other thing I'm hoping for is that this will push my weight loss to the next level. I think my hardest challenge right now is finding safe trails and daylight to actually get the miles in.
Anyone have any advice I would love to hear it!
