I'm doing it!

Okay, so I know I have been saying for quite awhile that I want to run a half marathon. The most I have ever ran is nine miles, but I feel that I could (maybe) push myself to get to 13.1. I am nervous as all get out, but I feel like I could do it. Not finishing is not an option, but it might take me all day.

I talked to friends about this, and they all had suggestions of what halfs (halves?) I should sign up for. All of them were local. For some reason I have been completely against running the Omaha one, but there are a few in Iowa that I maybe wanted to check out. But I wasn't passionate enough about any of them to actually research them, and by then my confidence had waned, and then I decided I actually hated running anyway and so I forgot about the whole idea.

UNTIL................

I saw this.

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?! A Wizard of Oz themed half?

I'm in. I'm so in.

I found a 20 week training plan, and I am running this bitch on Saturday, April 26th at 7am.

And, of course, I have started planning my outfit. Here are some ideas:



 
I AM SO EXCITED! I started the running plan yesterday, and it's weird how since I'm running  towards a goal, all of a sudden I am pumped about it again (even though I am on a freaking treadmill).
 
This is a big deal, so I will probably be blogging about it a lot, so bow out now if you are one of those people who hate listening to me talk (seeing me write) about running.
