I have a great idea. Let’s train for a half marathon together. It’s not as hard as you think. You run ~3days/week 3-4 miles each day. Then, on Saturdays, you increase your ‘long’ run from 3 miles to 12 miles over 12 weeks. If you’ve never done it, it’s amazing. And anyone can do it if you give yourself 3 or 4 months to train. The Nashville Music City Half Marathon is Saturday April 25, 2009. Start running 2-3 miles at a time 2-3 days a week and keep that up until January, then we’ll start the official ‘training’ schedule. My daughter Caiti’s gonna do it. It’ll be her first. Who else is interested? Jessica, Liz, Cindy, Sis, Keli, Leigh Ann, anyone …..come on girls….it’d be so much fun. We could encourage each other during the training period and then meet in Nashville in April for the run. What’d ya say? Let me further entice you by saying that I lined up for the race last year right beside Dave Ramsey!! and then shopped in Franklin all day (or mostly got inspired by all the amazing stuff….it’s hard to ‘shop’ when Dave Ramsey’s on your mind) and ate wonderful food…..and went to a great knitting shop……and had my makeup done at the MAC counter. It was a blast. You know you want to.
