Running is Contagious

What am I doing here? No really... What in the world have I gotten myself in to? How did this happen?

I will tell you. Their names are Patty, April and Rosalyn. Just a few of my imaginary friends I have "known" for five + years. Patty started it, we can all blame her. She started running a few years ago and now is a die hard RunDisney fan. I am not sure how she sucked April in but April did her first half (RunDisney Princess) in February '13. Then Rosie started running and she has lost 60 pounds! Pretty amazing. When talking about the Princess '14 somehow I got looped in (perhaps the enticement of a girls trip?) and it was all over.

It was a plan, I am going to be a princess.

Wait... What? I am running a half marathon? I don't run!

Don't get me wrong, I exercise, I like it. Well, I like to eat anyway and I need those calories. But running? I have never run. I have a dusty treadmill that I bought big and new when I was single but I choose the elliptical over the treadmill any day of the week. Moreover, runners are kind of annoying. All they ever want to talk (and blog) about is running.

But, here I am, learning to love it one step at a time.
