Don't call me Buttercup!

    Apparently, I am no good at sticking to my guns.    Anyone remember my rant from about 6 months ago about how I didn't want to sign up for a Half Marathon? 


    Guess what I did yesterday? Shocked


    May 5th, 2013, I will be eating crow.  Hopefully it tastes like chicken! 

    Slow and steady wins the....  wait a second! I've been lied to! 


    Runs the streets

      Yay! You're more than capable girl, so enjoy the journey! And enjoy the swag, and the smuggness after you do it while you enjoy the cold brew of victory. Also, it's cinco de drinko (and my birthday), so one will think it's weird you're chugging margaritas all sunday afternoon. you'll just be havinga cultural experience.

        Eating the crow while it's young and tender is always best!  Now, get to running.  Big grin

          Awesome!  I am right there with you, Di.    Just a few short months ago (but seems like yesterday) I said to myself that I didn't want to do a HM in 2013 and would maybe look at 2014....and now look.....just last week I signed up for my first half on 5/4/2013!     Good luck!

            Yayy!! Full report please!  I am in the same boat, i've done the 10K, not quite sure I want to do a half  in 2013.

            Women are like angels, and when someone breaks our wings, we continue to fly, on a broom, we're flexible like that...

            Just B.S.

              That's awesome Di!!


              We learn, we evolve, we progress, we set new goals. 


              FWIW, i spent the 10 years from when I started running in May 2000, right up to April 2010 saying I was never going

              to run a full and one week after you do you first half I will doing my 6th full.


              Be smart and stick to your training and you will do great. Better to eat crow than to be road kill in a 1/2

              due to improper preparation!LOL


              Never say never, cause you  never know what next year will bring! and that's no B.S.!!Big grin


              Is it a local race?


                Nice and congrats on the big step! 


                You know, it's better to eat crow than to be eaten by crows. .


                  That's a big deal!  Good luck with your training!


                    That was me once!  Probably most of us!
