I finally did it. (two things)

Yes I suppose I put it off long enough, probably subconsciously wishing it would be sold out, I officially signed up for the Half Iron that is one month away. I am under trained for this event but I do still have a month to go. I am doing my best with balancing work, family, and training. My only goal still is to finish and I think that will still be the goal up to race day.

And you know what else I finally did? I got my butt out of the house and ran this morning. I ended up talking to a guy in the pool on Monday who was training for Tri's and we exchanged Emails and decided to run together this morning. Went well and we are planning on doing some speed work tomorrow morning. If I didn't have someone waiting on me I would have not made it out the door. I must have told Kim 4 times that I wish I hadn't agreed to run. But when it was done I was glad I did it.
