How to go from couch potato to marathon runner in ten months???

I am definitely going to run the marathon next year. What am I doing to get there???


except dreaming.

I'm one of those people who has a hard time imagining something beyond the present day so most of my training is short term. I don't understand how people can train all year for something. I'm slowly learning I guess. I've been a last minute person for the past ten years and to unlearn that is proving to be notsoeasy.

Am I even exercising?

I run once a week with my 5k running group. Otherwise, not really. In April I will start running more with my group - 3 times a week. Till then I'm taking it easy.

I haven't been on a scale since February 2007. I love my body as it is and somehow don't exercise for appearance anymore. It's all about function and form and fun now. Too bad I'm in an industry where looks matter. I just may have to succumb and start stepping up my routines next year so I can get that Halle Berry body.

It's more about training my mind. One step at a time. Gonna get to that finish line. It's not a finish line - it's just the beginning.
