We all have a moment where we transcend everything we've previously accomplished, where we know that we've entered a new era, where our faith in our abilities has suddenly got stronger and we know, we just know, that we can do it.
Last night, after months and months of "I'm not good enough", "I'm not fit enough", "I'm not fast enough", "I have too much else on", "I won't be able to do that kind of distance" and all the other useless garbage that floated in and out of my brain every time I thought about stretching for something a little beyond me.....I entered a half marathon. Not the one I was originally planning to complete, as I'd left it too late, but I found another one.
It's in four weeks.
I'm SO EXCITED! :)
Stay tuned for the training plans and updates!

Lululemon has a great article here too about how to pick the right race for you!
