Get OUT and LIVE

Do you guys remember my post about Marathon Mom? If not, check it out. Anyway, for the past few weeks I have been debating whether or not to run the Ogden Marathon. Running a full marathon has always been on my list of things to accomplish. I have ran 4 half marathons and feel pretty comfortable with that but there is something inside me that really wants to run a full marathon (26.2 miles). I have been struggling with self doubt and thinking that there is just no way I would be able to do it and then... I was inspired by the Marathon Mom. Within the last week I have had this burst of self confidence and I KNOW that if I set out to do something, I can do it. If you remember in my post I had until November 1st to decide. November 1st was the first day of registration for the Ogden Marathon and I knew I had to decide soon because last year registration filled up within 2 weeks. Well, November 1st came and went. My Aunt asked me if I had decided and well, to be honest, I just needed one more day to decide. So yesterday I got on the webstie for the Ogden Marathon - the name of the website is:

G- et
O- ut
A- nd

This inspired me even more so I clicked on registration and began filling out the form. Then it came time to pay and I stared and the last page for about 10 minutes getting up the courage to click on "FINISH REGISTRATION". Then... I did it. I clicked. So there you have it. On May 19, 2012 I will be running a FULL marathon. I have heard that it is gorgeous check out the route here. I will be following a training schedule by Hal Higdon. As of right now, I am not nervous... but excited. I am sure those emotions will change once May gets here. So I will be sharing my marathon training with you to hopefully inspire YOU to Get Out and Live too!

~Wish me luck~
