If you can already run 12 miles, I'm sure you'll be fine for your half. Be sure to incorporate some hills, but I know you'll do fantastic!

That is so true! My goal, though it is to lose more weight, is to focus on strength, performance for 5k's and things and lose body fat! Have a great day and thanks for the blog comments!

Thanks for the blog comment!

I have been the same as I've lost weight. It was like I was ashamed and wanted to just stay in my protective bubble. I started pushing myself out more and more and more. It actually helped spur me on my journey! And yes, I don't just wear black anymore (though I still have a lot of it!) I love that my kiddo thinks the world of exercising and asks me to teach her things "when she gets bigger" (she's 3).

I look forward to the spring summer weather and doing so much of those fun active things!
