Registered for the LA Marathon!

2010 was a very big year for me! I finally finished my master’s program after 5 years of being in school, moved out of my parent’s house, and ran my first half marathon. While I was proud of the master’s and felt a little bit more independent after moving out, the accomplishment I was and am still most proud of is my half marathon finish. Why?

I suppose because it’s more physically challenging than anything I have ever done. With my master’s program, yes my brain got an intense workout and now my wallet, moving out and buying my own everyday essentials but a half marathon was something I never thought I could do. Well, enough relishing in my half marathon glory…as of today, I am signed up for the Los Angeles Marathon, just 45 days away! Am I nervous, heck yeah! Excited? Definitely! Can't wait for March 20th!


  1. Yay!!!! You know I'll be rooting for you sis!!! 45 days?!?!? Wow!!! At least you train...unlike some people *cheeky grin* the saying goes..."you never forget your first"! :o)

  2. Awww thank you!!! :) You know...I think I need to give those who don't train some credit bc I think that might be harder! LOL!

  3. I never did say congrats, but congrats! I'm sure you'll get a ton of advice, but the one thing I'll say is this - there is nothing like your first marathon. What matters most in the long run is that you enjoy it, revel in it and, as someone during my first marathon told me, soak it all in.
