And I would walk 500 more....... have I got that song stuck in your head yet? *insert cackle here*
Now that I have got the Daily Earworm out of the way I can update you on my half-marathon training progress.
My progress to date: I WALKED 10 MILES IN A ROW!!!!!!!

Yes, I hit double digit mileage. It seems like a small number in comparison to what runners do on a weekly basis. But for a slow walker, 10 miles is a HUGE time commitment. Although after following some nutrional advice from my personal Half-Marathon Consultant ms. caboo, I actually walked better and faster than ever. In fact, I completed this 10 mile walk in LESS time than I took to complete my nine mile walk. Not only did I finish faster, but I finished STRONG. My last mile was my fastest. I think I finally experienced endorfins. Elusive, pesky chemicals that have eluded me my entire life to the extent I thought that they were the stuff of legends. But no, I do have them. Yay.
So I'm looking at the possibilty that I may be able to finish the half-marathon in less than 4 hours. Maybe. We'll see :-P
