But to speak of the build-up...it is so exciting to train and actually do the race. But once it was over I felt a little empty. Proud, but empty. What's next for me? Will I keep going? I certainly can't give up at this point?
My cousin ran in the Half Marathon the following day, and she began her training last September. She is a full-time working mother just like myself, yet she didn't let excuses get in the way of her goals. So, she started the C25K program in September, ran her first 5k in January, and rocked it all the way to the Half in May! When she was done, she sent me a very simple message through Facebook..."Want to run the Columbus Half in October?" Um...YES!
So, here I am. Wondering what on earth I am thinking. Trying to figure out how I am ever going to fit in this training. Why I am even considering such a thing? Well, it's because I'm not finished yet! I CAN do this! I WILL do this! I am a ROCKSTAR!!!
