I am about to turn 33 years old and have come to realize that life doesn’t happen unless you make it happen. Nothing gets done when you sit on the couch dreaming about what you could be doing. Dreams are realized when you get your buns up off the couch and just do it. I have known too many people who just talk absently about what they wish they could do and what they would rather be doing than their current situation, yet never do anything about it. I have to wonder, “What’s stopping you?” They are their own obstacle. I want to get out and do everything that I can. I have so many interests and God knows I love to travel, so I want to embrace every opportunity to explore it all.
My challenge in the second half of 2011 was to train and run for my first half marathon. That was one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences I’ve ever had. Now I am working toward my first full marathon and decided to share my misadventures and musings with the public as I journey through to the finish line. This is just one of many great adventures that I am hoping to experience this year and I thank you for coming along for the ride!
