I am a little nervous about the 1/2 marathon. I need to get over my mental block that 13.1 miles is way too far to run all at once. My problem is that my knee starts hurting on mile 3 and I really don't know how much further I can run without injuring something. I am starting slow, trying to make it past 3 miles without any pain, but I have to start training in February and it is right around the corner. I have read that it is just your brain telling your body you can't do it and you have to push past it, but my brain is winning. ( I think it's smarter than me) I will keep trying and I will do the 13.1 miles, I just hope I don't end up walking the last 10 miles. ;)
Here is some inspiration!

Resolution time

This year I am training for the SLC 1/2 marathon in April. I just want to finish, don't care how long it takes. I also want to try and read 100 books, any books over 100 pages count. I also need to read with Hayden EVERY NIGHT! I have been a huge slacker on this and Hayden is the one I am hurting, so I gotta do better. I also don't want to make any "weight loss" goals, just eat healthy and work out more. I want to be a happier person and my body image is a big part of that. No more numbers game, I just want to be healthy and happy.

So, to sum it up:
Train for 1/2 marathon
Read with Hayden every night
Finish 100 books in 2012
Be happy and healthy

Here's to the new year!
