I’m Gonna Go ALL THE WAY!

For my next birthday, I asked my husband to grant a wish of mine…

and he delivered!  Honestly I just wanted to go to the Expo and buy everything, but on my THIRTY-SEVENTH BIRTHDAY, I’ll be running my first FULL MARATHON!  Yay!!!

I’ll be two months post-Wine & Dine Half by then, but like I said before…  The training never stops!

  1. Wow! Congrats! I look forward to seeing your pictures and hearing about your race. I’ve run/walked 5 half marathons. I’m not sure I have a full marathon in me. I have so much respect for those who complete one. You go girl!

    • Thanks! You know, I was doubting myself for a while, and I told myself that half marathons were my limit. Then, I thought about how I’ll be forty soon… I better get one under my belt while I still can, I said, and I clicked “register!” OMG!!!
