Training for a marathon

If you remember last week I had mentioned there was a milestone that I was working on....
I will share it with you today.
I have signed up for a 1/2 marathon. 
My (crazy) friend Debbie suggested I join her in running this marathon in our town. 
And as crazy as I am, I joined right along. 
Debbie was so sweet to reassure me that there will be aid stations along the way, lol
Oh ya, and we get a medal when we cross the finish line :)

A 1/2 marathon is 13.1 miles, or 21 kilometres.
Today was our first day of training. 
We walked 10.87 kg in 1hour and 44 minutes. 
I don't think that is too bad, considering we both have a couple problems with our feet..and our knees, oh ya and back, lol.
On our next one I need to bring a box if Kleenex with me. I still have a bit of my cold and went through all the Kleenex I had with me, lol. 

It isn't until September so we have plenty of time to train. 
I keep thinking of the great scrapbbook layout we can make when we complete this ;). 

Hope you all had a Creative Day :). 

Tracy :)
