Tomorrow i start preparing for something that i haven’t done in a long time.  Running.  Ok now, for the record, this isn’t me trying to bring some lame new years resolution to fruition, it’s me doing something that I want to do, and in a way i’ve never done before.  I should say that over new years i did realize how out of shape i was and was pretty bummed at that, so this will totally help.  Anyway, I ran long distance in High School and loved it…i actually did pretty well at it too (Amy’s not the only athlete in the fam…), so i signed up for the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon.  A lot of my friends from work were doing it and I’ve always wondered what it would be like to run a marathon…so i’m breaking in.  Its a 13 mile race to take place in May.  I’m starting small tomorrow with 2 miles and will grow that every week until 13 is a piece of cake…yeah right, but i like to aim high 🙂 So there ya go, here’s to eating more, buring calories, and trying to enjoy the cold weather…

    I suck at running. Brian’s been doing pretty well at it, though, so you guys should go running (if you haven’t already). Good luck, and don’t forget to go to the bathroom before the race.
