Here we go, Take 235249684! Seriously, after November 2nd, 2014 I thought I would never be back. Never be running again.. A little over a month ago I got the okay to start running again after a knee issue sidelined me. But I had to take it slow slower than normal. I’ve gained over 30 lbs back since then and I fell into a depression. It happens! It’s call the marathon blues / Injury Blues. I didn’t want sympathy from anyone. I just wanted to be hidden. Then I found out that runDisney was doing a new race. HOT DIGGITY DAWG. But what was it going to be? But when they announced it as a new Star Wars race…. My Goal was set.. I was going to beat this.. I was going to make this happen. So that October 22nd at 12:00pm ( high noon ) I signed up for, The Darkside Challenge! Sure why not.. right! seems logical… Lets Push the limits.. Let’s make IT happen! So here I am going shit.. so on my 36th birthday weekend I will be running 19.3 miles. That’s a 10K and a Half Marathon. Goals!
I accepted my challenge and today.. Today, was Day 1 of my training.. Today I walked a Mile then ran a mile in 13:21 Mins. Better than I thought I would do… and my body is thanking me.
