Denver half-marathon

"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."
~ John Bingham, running speaker and writer

With the inspiration of co-workers, I have decided to run this year's Denver half-marathon. I have about 7 weeks to train. I am so excited to be back in the racing mentality. This summer, I made a mental list of things I wanted to accomplish before my 30th birthday, and a half-marathon was one to check off. Sunday marks the beginning of my long runs. 6 miles... here I come!

Good for you. This is something that I have always wanted to do. Maybe someday I will find the motivation to get off my butt and do it.

Stopped by from SITS to say hi and welcome.

Good luck on your big run! I am taking my daughter and running in our first race together this Saturday. Just a 5K, but it's her first race ever. I am so excited!

Have a great Thursday, almost Friday :)
