So, I did something wild and crazy the other day.
I have been playing around with the idea of joining Leukemia & Lymphoma Socitey team in training. They are running the IronGirl 1/2 Marathon this Apirl very close to my home.
The fundraising scares me more than running the 13.1 miles. With a $1500 mimimum commitment, could I really pull this off? Who knows.
I ran the Maryland 1/2 back in May..and it was a DISASTER. With limited training ( I sucked at following the training plan), horrible nutrition and SO MANY HILLS…I didn’t do as well as I had hoped when signing up. Althought I did raise $700 toward the University of Maryland Greenbaum cancer center.
So when I received an email last week informing me that they would waive the $100 registration fee if I signed up by 1/8, I thought, how can I not sign up. TNT gives you the option to drop out if you feel that you can’t raise the money required or pay the difference.
On Sunday night, I was about to go to sleep, but I picked up my phone and registered. What do I have to lose, right?
I opted for the flex training. With mine and PW’s schedules so crazy, I thought it would be best to get in the runs on my own. I love the idea of having a coach to help me though this training. Someone to hold me accountable for my runs. I am very excited to get started!
I started my yoga practice back up..and I couldn’t be happier. I took a begginer vinyasa class on Saturday..my hamstrings and shoulders feel great/sore (aren’t they the same thing?) I am headed to a hot vinyasa class this evening at Charm City with Steph…so excited!
I am hoping to use this as a place to track my training and fundraising. I have started a food journal and i am writing everything that goes in my mouth down I am trying to shed a few lbs for my sister’s wedding in April, or atleast tone up. Let the chaos begin:)
