17 Days!

Photo from here.

17 days till I run my first (and last??) 1/2 marathon.  (I just wrote mara-thong. Ha, ha, ha!  Nope, no thongs here.  I think they are even more crazy than “thons”.)

That is 13.1 miles, or 20.96 kilometres!  I still can’t believe I am going to do this. Wanting to do this. Ready to do this.  But I am.  And I do.

On Monday, I did 19.5K.  And it was actually okay.  (I might even say it was good.)  And it made me confident that I can do this.

Last year, on February 19th, I wrote in my food and exercise journal/blog:

I want to do the Couch to 5K program and actually run a 5 K race. I writing this down so that I can be accountable to this goal. No, 5 K is not a huge distance or anything, but for me right now this seems unattainable. I would be so happy with myself and proud to have set a fitness goal and achieved it.

I would NEVER have thought I would be where I am today.  And that makes it all the cooler.

I am scared and excited.  But mostly excited.  I can’t wait to revel in the achievement once I am done.

17 days!
