Putting It Out There

I have made a big decision.

This is a big decision for me because what I am committing to is a LOT of... commitment for a girl like me. Someone who never finishes what she starts. Someone who has almost zero self-discipline. Someone who is really partial to the snooze button. Someone who is actually pretty weak underneath her new size 10 clothes...

With all of these strikes against me, I've had some serious inner-debate going on. Should I? Could I? Would I?

But as I was talking to an old pal tonight the answer became perfectly clear to me. It really goes back to what my whole "journey" has been about from the very beginning. Doing the thing that is impossible for me to do. Doing the thing that, when completed, has no plausible explanation other than God.

So, yeah. I'm going for it. I've got my 12 week plan and I'm ready to get started training for my first Half Marathon!

I'm just putting it out there...
