Just Do It

So, last week, I was trying to decide whether or not to sign up for the Go! St. Louis half-marathon by the October 31st early registration deadline...

I'm doing it! My registration form and check are in the mail as of yesterday afternoon. I decided I didn't have any really good reasons not to give it a shot.

Now, I just need a half training buddy or two...Trying to convince my two sisters to do it with me, although none of us live in the same city.

In other race news, I also signed up for the Girls on the Run 5k on November 14th. It seems like a great organization--it uses running as a way to help middle school girls build self-esteem and prepare for high school. If I liked kids, I'd totally volunteer with them. Since I don't, I'm going to donate and run their 5k...
I'm really going to try to shave some more time off my current "PR" (if you can call it that...) of 29.27. Probably a bit of a stretch, but I'd like to finish in 27 minutes.

Happy weekend!
