SLO Marathon

The countdown is on. 25 days until my first FULL Marathon. On April 29 I'll be running the San Luis Obispo Marathon. I'm excited, nervous, anxious, prepared, under-prepared, all of the above! As you can see, the banner has been erected on Higuera Street.

My training has kind of been up and down since the beginning of the year. Not gone exactly to plan but what training plan does. I've tried to adjust and get the most out of each day while still living my life. I think I'm prepared. But I know that this will be the most difficult physical thing I've ever done in my life. Five hours of continuous (mostly) running.

To be able to just finish will be an amazing accomplishment. Doing something like this wasn't even on my radar a few short years ago. But as I've progressed with my fitness, and now my running, I've been able to accomplish things I never thought possible. By the end of the month I'll be able to call myself a "MARATHONER", for the REST OF MY LIFE.

New Year's Resolutions

So, these are my 2018 resolutions in order of importance:

1. Complete my first marathon. I'm signed up for the SLO Marathon in April. If something happens with that one then maybe another one later in the year.

2. Do one non-running/walking exercise per week. Things like biking, weights, sports, etc.

3. Finish 2018 under 200lbs. On January 1 I weighed 198 so I don't have a lot of wiggle room here. If I stick with my habits I see no reason why I can't make this happen.

4. Not weigh myself on my scale for all of 2018. Honestly, I'm doubtful on this one because I think curiosity will get the best of me eventually. But as long as I'm not going up a size in clothes I don't think I'll really neeed to weigh.
