Announcement!

It's official!

I just signed up for my first ever HALF MARATHON!!

I will be running the St. Petersburg Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon on February 12th! 

And I got $20 off to register today on 11/11/11!


Running absolutely does NOT come easy for me at all. I am slow and have little stamina. But I've always wanted "to be a runner," and it's one of those things in life I feel like I haven't concurred! Not that I ever will, but I need to give a fighting chance because I honestly feel great after I run!





I also feel like now is the perfect time to train since the weather is cooling off. The only other times I have run were during the hot, Florida summers. What was I thinking?
And what better place to run than in my own city?

Not to mention that I will be turning 27 years old five days after the race!!



Let's do this!

Congrats on signing up for your first!! I ran my first 1/2 last weekend and I've caught the racing bug now. :)

But seriously, if I could run one, anyone can! You'll do great! Just take your time, go easy on yourself and have fun!!!

Yay for signing up for your first half marathon! Running does not come easy to me either, and yet I completed my first half on October 16, 2011. :-) Happy training!!

I, too, am an RN! Love your blog!

Good luck to you!!! I think you'll love the half marathon distance, it's challenging, but totally do-able :)
