30 Weeks to Better Health
A couple of months ago I gave myself a goal to run a marathon. I failed miserably in my training. It was a combination of laziness and my famous tendency to overreach. But NaNo taught me me that I can do anything, right? So I'm going to make being healthy a part of my routine too. I'm going to train to run a marathon in 30 weeks. I've got a 30 week training plan, a diet plan that isn't a diet, and a burning desire to get back into shape.
You know, as writers, we owe it to ourselves to keep ourselves healthy. I spend most of my life sitting on my butt. My day job is in front of a computer, my writing life keeps me sitting, and I read as much as I can, which is primarily a sitting activity.
I'm not really sure if there's going to be a real marathon at the end of this 30 weeks. There are a couple that fall on the right date but getting to Hawaii might be difficult.
So that's all there is. My inspiration has been Shannon over at daily pie. Not only is she a fellow Crow, but she's got a kickin' blog and recently finished her first half marathon.
Oh, and if anyone has any god running songs, I'm totally looking for some!
Oh, I also got tickets to see Amanda Palmer in Orlando on the 13th of December. I'm fairly excited about it.
