And So We Begin ...

I usually don't make New Year's resolutions. I know that I'm not disciplined enough to actually stick with them, and long ago decided to be realistic.

But this year is different. This year I am a member of Team Voice, and am training to run the WDW Half Marathon in January 2009. Wow. What have I got myself into?!

So, on Jan 1, on a day off from work, I got on the treadmill and did the first two miles of many to come this year!

And somehow this new year feels different, since I have a big challenge ahead of me, and other members of Team Voice counting on me -- Jonathan, Bryan, Rae, Kate, Jeff W. I'm excited about the challenge, and will be really excited if I can actually complete the Half Marathon.

The thought of completing such a big accomplishment (it's a big one for me) is a little scary, but mostly energizing!

So, two more miles tonight, and the night after, and the day after ...

"What have I got myself into?!"

You have gotten yourself into a mix of people with many goals and one voice. Or so it has been said.

Following Mousefest this little blogging community has taken on a different meaning and feeling for me.

I am sure that somewhere I have already stated the following.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to meet many of those who are a part of this. It gives me that little something extra to look forward to in '09. I do wish that some of us lived closer to each other and could do some runs together. Although many of us can't do that, we can make every effort to "Keep(each other)Moving Forward"

I promise to visit blogs often and leave my fair share of comments and cheerleading along the way.

This will be a big accomplishment for many of us.

A half Marathon.13.1 miles. I never thought I could do 3miles.I have.And I have really bad knees.Now My next big race is the 15k in May for the Minnie Marathon weekend.That is 9 miles.One more than TOT. If I can make it through that,I know I will be able to do the half.
I never thought this would take off like this. But it has and I just do not know what to say.
It is inspiring. I had many days last year where I wanted to quit.everyone helped me through it and I am still here.I will probably will feel that way again.
With that said....
