TASK #86 Run a Marathon Update 7!


I aimed to run a 1/2 marathon by Dec 08 and I think technically I've done it (unofficially that is). :)
Last Saturday I ran over 210 blocks!! I know, sounds crazy but i just started running and kept going, and going, and going from my house on 10th street to 115th street and back. After Google mapping it I found out it was about 14 miles which is slightly more than a 1/2 marathon.

It was crazy! I actually had to stop at a Walgreens for a gatorade and snickers after an hour and a half..started getting dizzy.

I'll need to sign up for a real run just to be sure and feel like I've accomplished a 1/2 marathon...but I feel good I've gotten this far on my own. More later...

I'm SO glad to see you posting again. I love to see how different everyone's experiences are, even though we're doing the same list. I can't wait to read that you've completed a full marathon!!

Thanks Gina, I appreciate the words of encouragement. After reading your 101, I think I should just sign up for my marathon and get it done. I might be more ready than I thought.

Oh, I'm adding a new challenge coming up in days...I'm gonna be a Polar Bear! haha. Don't miss that update.

Take care and good luck on your next achievement!


Anonymous said... you have me waiting to hear about this "Polar Bear" thing. What could this possibly be??

Hey Gina!

Thanks for your interest. I added a new post that explains it all. I'll be taking the plunge on Jan 1, at 10am CT at my local beach in Milwaukee, Bradford beach on lake Michigan.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Man, this is crazy! lol :)

Rock on!! I'll be cheering you on from the Sunshine State :)

Maybe you'll make the front page of a national newspaper while you're at it.
