What have I done????
Oh, no. What have I done??
Since starting my running program, I have been thinking about doing a half-marathon. I am a big Tennessee football fan, so my dream race is in Knoxville, finishing on the fifty yard line of Neyland Stadium. But I have heard that is a really hilly course, so I need to find something a little easier.
Nashville plays hosts to two major races a year: the St. Jude's Country Music Marathon in April, and the Women's Half-Marathon in September. I also looked at traveling to a race and thinking about doing the Walt Disney World Wine and Dine Race. You run it at 10:00pm, which means it will be cooler than daytime races. But I have also heard that Disney races are really crowded, but the thought of celebrating with wine was also very appealing. :) But the cost of traveling and staying there was just a bit too much for me at this point. Maybe in a few more years....
So on Monday, I crossed my fingers and toes as I pushed the "enter" button and finalized my registration for the September race. I have eight months to advance from running less than 2 miles (doing the run/walk method) to running 13.1 miles. Lord help me!
