Garry Bjorklunnd 1/2 Marathon / Grandma's 1/2 Marathon

I'm in!  I received an e-mail today indicating I was randomly selected to run The Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, otherwise called Grandma's Half Marathon.  There were 8200 registrations submitted and only 5000 would be selected.  I am very thankful that I got in and I am a little nervous.  Just because I ran it in 2001 doesn't mean it will be as good.  I tried once since the 2001 run and didn't make it to the race due to injury. 

This is the training program I am going to follow by Hal Higdon.  My sister will be running the full marathon and she's using this program.  She has already started her program and last weekend ran 7 miles!  I am up to a mere 1.5 miles and had to walk twice.  I guess we all start somewhere right? 

My weekday running will start at 5:30 AM and I will fit the weekend running in whenever I can.  Right now it's still dark at that time in the morning but soon enough I'll be running when the sun comes up.

So after 9 years, I'll try again.  I guess I am a runner in my head and on the pavement!  Wish me luck and I hope not to overload the blog with running stuff but I am sure there will be some.  :)

How about you?  Do you have any exercise goals for 2010? 

It's a beautiful day!
