We did it...

Jenny and I officially signed up for the 1/2 marathon...in other words they have our $75 and there's no goin back! I decided that I am also going to use this blog as my running journal...we have been reading a book where the author kept a journal the entire time she trained for a marathon and it seemed to keep her alive, LOL! Now our journey is only half of what she had to go through but I am sure it will still find some way to kick our butts! I actually purchased about 5 books a Borders today on running...the cashier either thought I was crazy or that I possibly had never even heard of this thing called running and needed five books to teach me everything there is to know but I just wanted to be prepared. Since we only began reading them tonight I cannot tell if they are actually helping or scaring us more but I'm sure we'll figure it out. We had our first training session tonight...only 35 mins of running (8 of that walking) on the treadmill...now I know that doesn't sound like much but trust me it is just enough time to let you know that cheer shorts and short spandex are DEFINITELY the wrong way to go...I know I wanted to slim down my inner thighs but I am not sure actually rubbing them off is the way to do it cause it kinda hurts. Tomorrow Jenny and I's top priority is to hit Sports Authority for some new running clothes because apparently high school cheer attire just ain't gonna cut it!
