I have, for the 3rd time no less, registered for a Half Marathon. It was originally my 50th Birthday goal, but that didn't work out. I signed up for the Seattle Amica Half in 2009 but missed it due to a bum knee...then I signed up for the BMO Vancouver BC Half in May 2010...which I also missed due to a bum knee. I did attend to cheer on my friends - some of whom were running their first ever full marathons. They did great and we had a wonderful time there.
Since then I have had knee surgery and a little brush with mortality, but I still want to do this thing!

We all know by now that I get all hot and bothered about something or other and go full tilt until I don't. So how do I make this one THE one where I actually make it to the starting line ~ hopefully the finish line ~ and a big fat finisher's medal? Good question - and one I will need to ponder a little further. It is, after all, Fall and daylight is a little more limited each and every day plus I live in a very rural area where it is not safe to run in the dark.
Stay tuned for further details.....
