confessions of a foodaholic

sharing my life through food

surfin’ in the USA!!

on July 5, 2012

…in Westerly RI to be more exact!!

Remember how i said to do something every day that scared you? (well…Eleanor Roosevelt said it, but i quoted her, it counts!!) well….i did it

i did something that quite frankly scares the crap out of me

i registered for a half marathon!!!!!!

now, if you know me, you’re probably thinking “who are you, and what have you done with taryn?”

but here’s the deal…i like running

scratch that…i love running

and i love races!!

now, i know i’ve only done 2

so i no where qualify as being an experienced “runner”

but the past two races have made me so happy, and it actually makes me want to go out and go running!!

take today for example…i got home from work and what did i do? i went for a run!

who am i?!?!

 

so yeah…i registered for a half marathon!

the surftown half marathon!

essentially we’re looking at 13.1 miles of beachy awesome goodness

that’s the huge draw

that and i’d get a medal at the end!!

i was never a huge athlete as a child, so something simple like a medal after an event means a lot!!

(i’m easy to please, what can i say?)

so i’ve looked up a training plan

and i start on Monday…..

heaven help us all!
