I got a text from my Running Sister today: have you been running lately?
My reply: ha ha ha ha ha! (to which I realized last year I told her I would really like to get to where I could run a mile.... well crap!)
Sister: I have a challenge for you I need someone for my ragnar team which is 26 and 27 of Feb it would be great fun for you to do it with me what do you think?
What I think is I'm a suckerific runner, and a wiener, but that's not what I replied, however I was honest: I can't run more than a block, I suck!
To which I immediately got dressed and went for a little run and a lotta walk. When I got back-
Me: Make me do it, I need some motivation.
Sister: Ok how about setting a goal for next year?
Me: Thanks that's the kick in the butt I need to get moving.
Sister: Ok then it's set next year your on the team.
Now, I know somewhere deep inside I really want to be able to run. I also know it will be a lot of hard work, and pushing for me to do this. So I have about 13 months to be able to run 3-4 miles without keeling over. Doubtful... hell yes.... this is me we are talking about it. But now that I've committed to the Running Sister, I will do my best.
