I figured that I should officially announce that I am training for my 2nd marathon. I have big goals for this race, but I don’t know if I’m quite there yet. Only time will tell. I recently read a quote that said “If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.” So I guess there is nothing wrong with having slightly terrifying goals. This was kind of a spur of the moment decision on my part so I didn’t really put as much time into training as I would have liked to. I’ve been training for Ragnar so I had a pretty good base to start with at least.
I happened to be on Facebook one day and saw several people from back home posting about the half marathon. I wondered when the full was and when I checked it happened to be the day after my sister-in-law’s wedding. We will be in town for the wedding, plus I’m making the cake. I took it as a sign that I simply had to run in that race. My husband was concerned with me getting enough sleep, but who really gets a good night’s sleep before a race any way?
It is only those who believe in their ability who shine when it matters.
