As a lot of you may know, I have a thing for running...I love it and well, it works for me. I started running as a chubby little kid in high school and kept on going. I remember going to cheer a college girlfriend on during the Baltimore marathon and thought, oh gosh I never want to do that. Well over the last six years I have finished four major marathons and I have to say, I'm pretty proud of that! I guess my mind changed. Looking back on some old posts here and here got me smiling and feeling inspired after this long holiday weekend. They got me thinking that recently something has been missing, running. It wasn't until a Florida running buddy of mine sent me this link below, that I found myself tearing up and overly excited and inspired to do it again. So here I go .... I'm signing up for a half marathon in February in Fort Lauderdale, who wants to join me here?

I know some of you think I'm crazy, but honestly, it is such a good feeling to finish a long run. I've complained to so many of you since I moved to Florida about not being fully happy, gaining weight, blah blah blah. I've tried so many different workouts and it is time I get myself back into the happy place I know works for me, a nice long run. Watch the video below, it made me inspire. Tomorrow starts day #1 of 13 weeks of training...wish me luck!
