1/2 Marathon

I have these CRAZY friends (yes...that's you Heather and Holly!) who have been talking marathons for the last year or so. They paint such a fun and glorious picture of this challenge of running your rear-end off!

Well, I caught the bug! The peer pressure was killing me! I love to run for the pure joy of it, but I have never pushed my body beyond three miles! So, the last two weeks I have been getting up with the roosters (literally) and taking off on a sun rising adventure. Yeah right! I am having to drag myself out of bed and talk myself through every mile!

I hope this new little goal of mine gets easier with every day! The Houston Marathon is in January and my goal is to be there! Ok, not just be there but run a comfortable 1/2 Marathon. CRAZY you might say...Yes, I would have to agree! But as my adorable husband would say, "You are just stubborn enough to do it!" With those encouraging words I am off to a new world of marathons!

Well, to run good you have to look good, right? So I have my gear:
  • Duo Dry Shirts and Shorts (Teal, Coral, and White)
  • Duo Dry, No Show socks
  • Strawberry Gatorade
  • Mizuno Wave Inspire 3 running shoes
  • Hot Pink MP3 Player (Thanks Boys)
  • Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch Cliff Bars

And this Little Lady is Off!

Have I forgotten anything? What is your favorite running "gear"?

My favorite running gear is "P" for "park".
You're stubborn enough to do it - and I'not doing it, so... I think it's logical to say that I am not stubborn. Yesss!

Good luck... I love you!

Oh, and to answer your questions...It looks like you have everything for now. Holly and I will let you know as the season goes on what you might need. :)

My favorite thing is my comfy shoes! Oh, and my fuel belt...which you might need later! HA

I can see now that I am going to have alot of cheering to do in January ! I am proud of you. Personally, I just want the new shoes and cute running clothes and then watch you girls run.

I like all your cool new running essentials! I am all about whatever makes it a more fun experience! For me, the music is an absolute must have.

I loved Trey's comment! Not only did he read it, he commented. Yea! I almost have to beg Scott to look at mine.
