Rain Rain go away! I am so over the rain and the flooding! Though a positive for the rain is that I don't so hot when I am training!

Oh yes I am training for a half marathon. I mean really training. I am running everyday. I have heaps of weight to lose and a big distance to run so with my Big Sister dragging me down the street most of the time I am training! I am really going to have to focus on what I eat now! Because it would be so much easier to run if I could drop the kgs! My body is hating me and my mind is not letting go all that well but I am persisting and not giving up. Cause my marathon is in June so I have to ready to run 21.5Kms by then! Which I will have you know that I will do!

My sisters' girlfriend Rachel was kind enough to by me a hat that says "I love running" on it! Eventually it will be burnt into my brain and then running will be a cinch! We have started a team actually, and I am looking for sponsors because I am too poor to get the equipment i need to run properly. So if anyone knows of a company that would like to sponsor a fat 28yr old Mum of two to lose weight and run a marathon let me know cause I am not stopping till I get what I need and till I get to the finish line of that marathon.

This months goal is to run 5kms continuously. So far I am going... I will let you know how I go when I get to the 5kms. Actually I am going really good. I would be doing better if I could stop my shin splints and leg cramps! I am so looking forward to the day when they are thing of the past! So watch this space and I will periodically post pics of my progress.

Oh the shin splints!
That brings back memories of when my body was capable of running.
Good luck with your marathon, what an awesome goal!
