I did it!

I registered for the half marathon in January! No turning back now... I have a goal to walk/jog the thing and push myself and finish under 3 hours. Pretty do-able, don't you think? I think if I alternate walking and running I will be fine. Right now I can run 5 miles fairly comfortably on the treadmill at a 12 min/mile pace. Running outside seems to be a whole lot easier and I go fasterso I am excited to give this a shot!
This was on the entry form:
"Hazards – The trail is in the woods, it’s dirt, there are trip hazards, bugs, animals and all sorts of plants that can make you itch or
How funny is that? This is going to be WILD!
Also, the entry form said this:
"SWAG—Long sleeved shirts to all pre-registered entrants (before Jan. 3, 2010). Shirts to late registrants on a first come to packet
pick up first served basis. We hope to have lot’s of SWAG to give away. If you or your company would be interested in donating,
please shoot me an email, email@example.com."
I am trying to figure out what "SWAG" stands for... Any ideas???
When I was watching Biggest Loser this week they said less than 1% of Americans have run a marathon. I totally want to be in that percentage!!!! I want to be like Oprah and run one before I turn 40 (I turned 37 this year).
Anyways, thanks for the encouragement on yesterday's blog! Y'all got me excited and I am thrilled to be doing this! Have a great weekend, SparkFriends!
