The “Wicked Half”

It’s official.

I *just* signed up for my first-ever half marathon.

ACK! (my new favorite word as my sister so aptly pointed out to me today!)

Part of me is SUPER excited to get ‘er done.

Part of me is skeered that this will be a challenge I will have a hard time completing.

But more of me knows that its the exact right challenge for me because it stretches me out of my comfort zone, distance-wise and gives me a HUGE goal to look forward to for the foreseeable future (aside from Kick,that is!). Annnd it’s a check box off my new years’ resolutions and my bucket list, woo!

And I know, you’re probably wondering if I threw “focus” out the window but alas, I have not (I don’t think, anyway). This half isn’t until September 25 so by then, the chaos of Kick will have subsided and hopefully I’ll be in a good rhythm with the program and teaching my own class (yes, that’s me being “Positive Polly” that I’ll have my own class!) that I’ll have the time to focus on training for the half.

I actually love that it’s called the “Wicked Half Marathon” – it just sounds bad-ass and very New England to me which is perfect in my book. 🙂


As an aside, I urge you all to head on over to The Balance Broad to read her take on size and whether or not it matters. I love her perspective and obviously totally agree with it. 🙂

And PS. No news on the Kick front – though I’m pretty sure you’re probably all very sick of me blabbing about it, ha.
