betterME Day 3 : Pushing the Limits

betterME Day 3 : Pushing the Limits!

OK, so the challenge for today was :

* do something you didn’t think you could or ever would

With that in mind today I joined the Atlanta Track Club and I also signed up for, paid for, registered, and entered the Atlanta Half Marathon (13.1 miles) that’s to be run on Thanksgiving day this year !

I’ve run several 10K (6.26 miles) before but never anything over that.

In the past my training has pretty much consisted of training for the Peachtree Road Race 10K around March or April, running the race in July and then doing nothing until the following April. LOL

With the Half Marathon in November it will give me motivation to keep running and training after the Peachtree is over.

If anyone wants to train for the Half Marathon with me let me know!!

Also, while I’m not quite ready for a full marathon (26.6 miles) Atlanta also hosts a Marathon Relay for a 4 member team which splits the distance between the 4 team members.  The race is Oct 30 and at least for me would be a good tune up run for the Half Marathon.  So if anyone is interested in joining a team with me please let me know !

Fate/RNG has determined that tomorrow’s challenge shall be…. >>>> drumroll <<<<

* cook something you’ve never cooked before or think you couldn’t cook

Anyone for dinner? LOL Check back to see how I do 🙂

As always any comments, ideas, suggestions, and your own thoughts are more than welcome !!  I of course welcome any challenges from the reading mass to do this weekend 🙂
