I registered for a half marathon!!

And got denied. 


*heavier, longer, louder SIGH*

*and once get the idea*

Well that stinks. I worked up the courage to register for the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon and didn't get in. I know, it's nothing personal, just luck of the draw, but still. Talk about a let down. I didn't even know if I really wanted to run it until I found out I couldn't.  Boo, hiss and all that jazz. 

But I have decided I am going to train for it anyway. I honestly don't know if I can physically do it (bad knees, running affects my milk supply, yada yada) but I am going to give it a whirl. And if I find out halfway through training that it's just not going to happen, at least I won't be out the $75 registration fee. Silver lining? Sure. 

So, with that, I am formally announcing that I am training for a half marathon. 

Any suggestions on a training plan? I am going to look at Hal Higdon, Jeff Galloway and Garry Bjorklund's plans.

Wish me luck! 

(I wrote this on Tuesday and just realized today that it didn't post. I am having internet connectivity issues on my laptop. It's been a reoccurring problem since I got it in 2007. I think I got a bad Apple. boo.)

  1. 1. My neighbor Kayla and I are following the same plan (well basically). Except she's pregnant. I'm just out of shape. My goal is to run 10 miles before July 1.

    2. My laptop also has internet issues. Has to do with the airport seeing my neighbor's internet before it sees mine. perhaps we should talk.
