The Half Marathon Challenge

I was at the fitness center yesterday at work and a couple of girls were talking about doing a half marathon. One said "Amy, you should do it too". My initial response was like - yeah right. The longest I've run is 5 miles. How in the heck could I do 13.1? Then as I sat at my desk the rest of the afternoon, I really started thinking about it. One of the girls emailed me a training plan and told me again I should do it with them. The more I thought about it, the more I got excited about it. So, I have officially decided to run the Tulsa Route 66 Half Marathon in Nov. Everyone needs a challenge every once in awhile. And honestly, if something doesn't come easy for me, I quit. This will not be easy - and I am ready to push myself. I'll be deep and call it personal growth. So, I've got 15 weeks to train. Here goes nothing.....
