Challenge Accepted

I’m going to finally do it – run a marathon!

It’s always been on my bucket list and this past week, I signed up to run the San Francisco marathon on July 31.

I’ve been training for about a month, and there have been a lot of ups and downs, but decided to make the leap.

The training has actually been my biggest concern, as the miles pile up and I’m afraid of getting injured. If I’m going to do this though, now is as good a time as ever.

Honestly, the best time to do it was probably when I was in tip-top running shape during my high school cross country days. It’s just going to get harder as I get older.

I haven’t done a half marathon before, but I’m going to just go for the whole shebang.

So two more months of training, and then 26.2 miles of the biggest mental and physical challenge I’ve ever taken on.

Challenge accepted.
