To Half or Not to Half

Dear Internets,

The deadline is fast approaching for me to decide whether or not I want to train for a half marathon in November. On one hand it's hooooooooot outside, so I'd have to start long runs around 7:00 a.m. on weekends. I'd also probably need new running shoes before the race. And I don't exactly have hours of extra time on my hands (see 2nd job).

On the other hand, I know I need something to push me to get up and move. I love training with a group, I love pushing my limits, and I love having an excuse to have a second helping of dessert. Also, my sister and brother-in-law offered to run the race with me for support, which would probably be really fun (and motivating - they're FAST).

It'll probably end up being a question of whether or not I wake up in time Saturday morning to meet with the training group. I guess we'll see...

Love ya,
