marathon?

Okay I am taking a big step today and blogging about something that I talked about to only a few. Here goes..........I am running a marathon. Okay I said it and it is out. I am running a marathon in December and I started the official training last week. I have been trying to get to the point to officially train since May and now the time has come. I am blogging about this on here because it is something that my training book says to do. My sisters and I are all training together and we are using the "Non-runners guide to running a marathon". So far I love the book and it is very inspiring and very very helpful for us non-runners. But one thing it said to do was completely commit to it and that means telling everyone that you are running. I am sure we are supposed to this partly because that makes it that much harder to back out! It will give me a lot more shame and embarrasment if everyone I know knows that I didn't actually complete it. Which is why I haven't mentioned it to many people. I haven't really even discussed it too much with Dustin. He knows that I am running a lot and I have mentioned a marathon now and then but Dustin if you are reading this......I am seriously going to do this. I am running a marathon in December with all my sisters and I am going to do this even if I have to welk a quarter of it (which at this point is where I am). This week I am supposed to run a total of 16 miles and that is A LOT to me! I went three last night and I WILL go four tonight. Okay it is out there and think of it what you will, but I did my part of the book.
