i’m an artist, not an athletePosted: May 8, 2011
ok, i don’t really consider myself an artist either, but i’m definitely not an athlete. this post doesn’t really have anything to do with being especially creative, but it does have everything to do with saving artist ryan. that’s what’s important, right? i completed my first 1/2 marathon on april 30- the country music 1/2 in nashville! i started training to run/walk it in january. i hadn’t exercised much at all for a while (oops), so training was quite the uphill battle for me. despite my periodic frustration with the training, the race was AWESOME. i still walked some of it (that was what i was training to do. wasn’t expecting a miracle), but i felt so good the whole time (except for a little struggle at mile 11)! and i got a medal! maybe everyone else got a medal, too, but i’m going to ignore that fact. now, i need to motivate myself to train for another one! maybe i’ll even train for speed!
i know i probably should have done this BEFORE the 1/2 marathon, but i’m running my first 5k on may 21- ellie’s run for africa in nashville. join me and support a great cause!
