And off we go!

What am I getting myself into! At least that's what I'm thinking as I type. I've signed up to train and complete a 1/2 marathon AND raise $7,500 for a cause near & dear to me - Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America - AND I've decided to blog about my progress.  I was not/am not a diary keeper nor do I journal anything! At all! And yet here I am vowing to blog about my training and my fundraising.

Today is the close of week one for me. It is actually week two for all others on the Team Challenge Kona group. I've run until I couldn't, walked to catch my breath and then run some more. All the while thinking, OMG this is just 3 miles and I've got to go 13.1 miles! But here's the thing ~ I know I can do this, this training thing. After everything else, I KNOW I can do this. Maybe it's because of everything else, I KNOW I can do this.

I hope you'll join me on this new adventure, maybe make a donation to the cause.

See ya!


  1. oh Im so excited for you. I started running this past fall and slowed down a lot this winter (too hard to breath in cold dry air) Im am starting back and look forward to it every time. Some quiet for me when that is a rarity around here. Do you have some type of schedule you follow? If so let me know. Im proud of you girl!

  2. Thanks April! Yes, I am following a training schedule right now. I've got to get ready for a 1/2 marathon by the end of June. I can email it to you.

  3. You CAN do it! I KNOW! And it IS b/c what you've been through that makes me KNOW you can do it! Can't wait to read your blog. I resurrected mine. :)
