Well... it's official!
I will be running the Nashville 1/2 marathon on April 28th! I have been thinking and talking to Carol about doing a 1/2 for a while. We initially thought about running the Disney World Princess Half at the end of February, but life happened and we never started training. While I am still interested in doing this half one day, the cost to get to Orlando and really the whole weekend would have been too much, so I may try this in the future.
After taking the cost and a few other things into consideration, we decided on the Nashville 1/2. I am so pumped (and nervous) for this! My friend Ryan ran the full last year and I am thankful to be able to ask him questions and also have Carol with me throughout training and the big day! I was also able to convince Steven and Carol's BFto come, so we are going to make a weekend out of it!
I know the next few months will be crazy, but I am going to try to be very committed to training and running. One of the reasons I am going "public" with my decision is that I know that my friends and family will hold me accountable; with their support, I can accomplish this!
Let the adventure begin...
