Let me preface this by saying that I do not INTEND on this blog becoming a fitness/health blog. That being said, whatever happens… happens.

My friends and family know that I am a pretty health-concious person. I work out regularly, I am kind of obsessed with nutrition labels and good-for-you foods, Whole Foods Market is on my list of previous employers, I am a pescetarian, etc etc.

You get the idea.

That being said, I am running my third 5K tomorrow (Sat) morning — the Susan G. Komen “Race for the Cure” to support breast cancer awareness. I’ve lately been feeling that I should aim for an even bigger accomplishment. If I can go from despising running to running a 5K (baby steps, right?) — what else am I capable of?

Which brings me to my new goal.

Half-marathon – Downtown Raleigh, NC – November 3rd, 2013.

Fellow fitness fanatics, let me know what I’m getting myself into. I want your input, tips, advice. Link me to your favorite training plan. Fill me in on your most-valued mantras. Call me crazy. Refuse to read another post ever again because you’ve dubbed me insane. (Okay, not that last one.)

Enjoy your weekend and please please please be safe on those wet/flooded roads!
