When I was younger, (c'mon, not that many years ago), I loved to run, especially the longer distances and one of the things I always dreamed of doing was running a marathon.
Now 2 growing kids and lots of poundage later, it almost seems an impossible dream. But just today, I read on one of the blogs I follow (http://weight-loss-story.blogspot.com) of a success story: from 270 pounds to Ironman Cozumel!
So it's not impossible. I'm going to start small and aim for not this year's, but next year's Sun Fun Run. I`m hoping to get Big J interested too.
Okay, it's not a marathon, it's only 10k. But it's a start. The fast runners finish in about 1/2 an hour, and the route is very nice - all along our sea wall.
So: I`m starting my own Bucket List and Run a Marathon is going to be the first item on it.
How many items can you have on a Bucket List anyway?
