What did I do?

So two weeks ago,

I did the unthinkable...

I signed up for a MARATHON! This one to be more exact:


At the time, I was so pumped. However, lately I've been getting more nervous as the beginning of my 16 week training (from RW Smart Trainer) is about to begin. I made it 20 weeks long (since the marathon is 20 weeks out) and have been doing well with the easy run and speed workouts every week, but have yet to squeeze in my long run. This is a huge problem as my longest run in the past 2 months has been 4 miles. My weekends have just been too crazy! Hopefully when the real 16 weeks start (the last week of school), I'll have more motivation and time to actually do it.


Let the countdown begin...

Where to begin...

Unbeknownst to many (except for maybe those family members who see me blog stalking during family get-togethers), I've been reading blogs for quite some time now. I've always wanted to start one myself but decided not to for many reasons...

1. I didn't think I'd have enough to blog about. Then I remembered a few things:
a) I'm a teacher. This in itself produces countless "blog worthy" stories.
b) I live right outside of Boston and therefore there are countless things to do,
and subsequently blog about.
c) I'm constantly on the go, so to say I don't have enough to blog about is

2. I wasn't sure anyone would want to read it. Not to sound conceited but I know I'll have (I hope) at least a few followers in my family.

3. I wondered if I'd have the time to keep up with it (still wondering about this one).

Anyways, I decided to stop procrastinating and finally do it! What "it" will be about is still undecided.

Until next time...
