April 29...The BIG Day!

That is the day I will run my first HALF MARATHON!  That is right friends I signed up and am going to do this!  Last year I had signed up for one but got hurt and was unable to run.  I did not have any plans to sign up this year as I thought there would be something little growing but since that is not the case, I took the plunge and signed up.

I am so excited but nervous at the same time.  I can't believe I am going to do this but also I can't wait!  I am going to do my best to not be hard on myself and realize that all I want to do is finish without walking.  No time limit this go around, just finish.

Some maybe wondering if we are putting off starting a family and the answer to that is...HECK NO!  It has been a long year and some months so if I get pregnant then I get pregnant.  If not then we keep trying.  I kept putting off this half marathon for the 'what if I get pregnant' and then realized that I can't keep living my life for the 'what if's' and I need to start living my life for the things I can do.

So please pray for me and with me as the weeks go by.  It's going to be a fun ride!

YAY for running your first half AND for being injury free!!! You will love it-hydrate like crazy the day before and take an ice bath post race and you won't be sore. You've got this!!
