First training session down and my 40 list!

I DID IT!  My first day of training, a day ahead of schedule, It's not much, but I did it,  and my mom came over to start with me!  I feel great, we started with our 6min walking then 1 min. running repeated 3 times.  It was a lot easier than I thought and I could have kept going but instead we came back home and took the dogs up in the hills for a hike. I plan  on doing the half marathon which is 13.1 miles in stead of the full marathon at 26 miles.  Next year, I will try the full marathon and I am going to stick to it.  

Now for my 40 list.  Liz had a 32 list of things to do before her next birthday.  She is ahead of me since my birthday was in July , so I think I will give myself one year from today, so I will try diligently to complete all 40 before October 11, 2009.

No there's a list! Good luck on it and I hope you accomplish it all. I need to do a list too, we all do, but I'll not complete it before my next b-day. (That's next week!!)

You should add "save a life" every other week. It seems to be your specialty!
