Insanity maybe?????

Well I may have crossed the line into insanity. Just over a year and a half ago, I started jogging to help maintain my weight. Since that time, I have entered a few 5k's, 10k's and 5 half marathons. Now, I am training for a full marathon I signed up for that will be on May 4th. My PR for a half marathon is 1:51 so, when I registered I put down 4 hours for my finish time. Just thinking that I will be running for four hours straight, leads me to believe that I crossed over the insanity line. Oh well, this has been on my bucket list, so I have to give it a try. Anyone want to join me for a short little jog?

My partner is currently training for his first marathon and I think he's insane.  But his dedication to training is part of my own motivation to get this surgery and improve my own life.  I'm hoping to be able to run the local Turkey Trot (5k) in November with him!  He said he'd even run at my pace to keep me company.  That's true love right there ;)

Good luck!

Hey Alison, I run for the both of us. How does that sound? How have you been my friend? Long time no hear. We need to have a SB run soon.
