Just wanted to announce that I have committed to running my first half-marathon. YAY! I am REALLY excited (and nervous). I figure that my time at the gym and the miles I am running, might as well go towards something. It's April 19, here in St. Louis. I have heard it is a great, really fun run to do.

**My official race training starts Sunday. I think I will be fine the first few weeks or so, but once I get up to running more than 5 miles, it will be challenging. I am by NO means a distance runner, so I am pretty nervous, but I know I can do it.

**If anyone wants to join me, let me know! :) One of my best friends is coming in town to run it, also. She says she will stick with me and run slow, but I know she will smoke me! haha!

**I have no goals, other than to do it and finish...I don't care how long it takes me. I say that, but even last night as I was running, I kept trying to make each mile faster than the one before it-ha!, but I know once I start running more, time will not matter. It's easy to try and run fast when you are only running 3 miles, it's a whole other story when you are running 13! ha!

**So, here's to hoping I stay injury free and healthy!! I will keep you all posted on my progress and training.
