Addicted?

Thank you to those of you who said such nice things about my first half marathon!  I hope you all enjoyed the pictures.  If it werent for other people blogging and pictures of their half marathons I am not sure I would have even gotten up the guts to try one for myself.  So thank you to those of you who have inspired me and made me feel like I could do this!!!!  This blog has been an amazing support system for me.

And now that I have, I think I am addicted!  I cant wait to do another one.  In fact, I just looked at some races coming up next month in my running magazine.  Its getting a bit too cold here in NY for marathons around here, but I did find one in VA which is probably an 8 hour drive.  Crazy?  Perhaps.  But I am totally looking into it!  And, I called my friend Laura and asked if she wanted to come with me because she is totally capable of doing a half.  And I want her to have that surreal feeling that I still have!!!  Plus, a girls weekend sounds awesome doesnt it???  We have 6 kids between the two of us so I am thinking we are deserving, right?

My soreness and stomach issues have subsided.  So now I am left with some pictures, memories and a medal.  It was such an amazing experience and I cant wait to do it again.  If you had told me two years ago that I would have run a half marathon in my lifetime, I would have laughed (as I  took another bite of my donut...hehe).  This has made me feel like I am capable of whatever I put my mind to.

Well heck, yeah...you're trained, you have the mileage built up - might as well run another half (or more)!
