Setting My Goal

I don't make New Year's Resolutions.  It makes me sad the number of people who promise to make a change in themselves (and don't follow through with it for more than a few weeks) all because of January 1.  I just don't do it.  Of course that doesn't apply to everyone out there, and kudos to all of you that resolve to change something and succeed at it.

That being said, what I am about to tell you will look strangely like a New Years Resolution.  Don't be fooled...it is not, it is actually just a case of really unfortunate timing.

I am doing the Oak Barrel Half Marathon
Am I crazy?  Quite possibly.  But running seems to be all the craze these days and I am all about doing what the cool kids are doing (with the exception of making a resolution of course).
So on April 7, 2012, I will huff and puff my way through the hills of Lynchburg, TN in an effort to cross the finish line...ALIVE. 

But Chelle, this sounds and awful lot like a resolution to me.
I know it does, I told you it would.  Like I told you before, it is really just unfortunate timing that my goal of running a 1/2 marathon coincides with all of the other people that swear this year they are going to do XYZ. Today I am 7 weeks post-partum and finally got the go ahead from my doctor to start an exercise regime to include training for a half marathon.  

I joined the DailyMile.  Mostly because my friend Shannon from Why Not On A Tuesday wanted a friend on there, but also because it would give me a way to keep up with how often and how many miles I need to run.  So if you are feeling particularly feisty, you can find me on DailyMile!

Happy Trails!
