This week I am living on cloud 9. Why is that you ask? It is because I recently smashed to bits a goal that has been lying dead at the bottom of my bucket list to do's for longer than I plan to admit. Every year the opportunity presents itself, I make some excuse about bad knees or lack of fitness and then the event comes and goes and I am left disappointed. This year I am hitting the big quarter century (sob) so I figured I had to do something big just to show that over the hill vibe what it is messing with. So I did the training and this weekend, I ran my first ever half marathon and I absolutely loved it. If you had told me 2 years ago of the fate that lay ahead of me I would have literally laughed out loud and bought you another drink. I am so ridiculously stoked I am tempted to get a tattoo of my medal so I can wear it forever.
