Ready or not, here I go!!

Three days and counting!  Until what?  Until this girl starts Hal Higdon's 12 week Half Marathon Training!  YIKES!  Over the past 6 weeks I have been working out and building up some endurance on the treadmill, but now it's go time.  No turning back.  I see the goal and I LONG so badly to attain it.
I watched my Dad commit to training for a marathon last year....the man did not falter.  He decided, he committed, and he succeeded!  I am praying for that level of determination.  Maybe it's genetic?  :)
Looking  at the schedule for the next 12 weeks is messing with my mind a bit.  I have moments of thinking, "I can't do this EVERY DAY, it will require too much time away from my kids!"  I know this is NOT truth.  Truth is that committing to a healthy way of life is the BEST thing that I can do for my kids.  Continuing to live obese and unhealthy is what REALLY would take too much time away from my kids.  I have to reminD myself of this daily.
So friends, I know some of you are on a similar journey.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.  I know if it's hard for me, it's hard for you!
I can do this!  You can do this!  WE CAN DO THIS!
