if by answered you mean to the best of my current ability—which I do.
First, Im compelled to say how honored and excited I am by how many of you are willing to join in this crazy little plan.
Virtually or in Las Vegas.
In this misfit’s mind neither one is “better” or more fraught with “achievementnessment” (technical term).
On to your questions.
There is no way I could be ready to run a half marathon by 2012 let alone this December. I don’t know that I would even want to as I am not a runner. I’m a little disappointed Miz that this is all about running.
OK thats not really a question (wink) but I received more than a few comments/emails along these lines so I wanted to clarify a bit ( more to come as the weeks progress). This is about goal setting and achievement. This is about declaring December the 5th 2010 as an international day of REACHING OUR GOALS.
Whatever the goals may be.
You might choose that as the day you don a tank-top & wear it all!day!in!public! (I loved this goal and it’s one of yours) or the day you finally walk a 5k in your neighborhood with a gaggle of girlfriends.
The goal doesn’t matter. It’s all about the achievementnessment (see above).
I can’t afford to fly to Las Vegas. Are you going to organize other meet ups for races?
I loved this suggestion/question yet am barely keeping my head above the proverbial water as it is. Perhaps we could organize, closer to December, a list by states. Would you–the royal– be interested in that?
Are you using a training program? Which one is the best?
Ive chosen this program—for no other reason than I saw it and it felt do-able. My last half-marathon was so…horribly trained for (responsibility firmly on this woman’s shoulders) I pretty much know ANY plan I find and *stick to* will work. And I wanted to be sure to select a novice program.
I am planning to walk the marathon in Las Vegas. Is anyone else walking? I wish I could run it but I can’t because of limitations.
We selected this race partially because of the fact it’s so walking friendly. Ive received about 6 emails from people planning to walk in Las Vegas & about the same number of tweets as well.
What also stuck in my mind about this email is the “wishing s/he could run.” I want to clarify again that this isnt about running. It’s about achieving whatever your own *personal* biggest goal is….and our achieving en masse.
Are you really getting married? During the race?!
Yes…and no. I actually had no idea getting married while running was an option …and when I found out & shared with Ren Man I discovered it wasnt. For me anyway.
There’s no way he’s getting his arse out there for a running marriage and I cant say I blame him.
As a result I plan to run in my bridal tutu (photo above) & have 100% deferred the wedding plans to him.
All his choice (Im game for anything from Elvis to traditional) and Ill let you know as soon as I do.
Are you running the half in your VFFs? How did you like running in them?
Maybe (it feels way too early to tell) and post coming all about that next week.
Is MizFit going to be all about running now?
Yes, someone actually asked that and I was glad she did. The answer? Hell to the NO!
Will it be all about the GOAL SETTING & ACHIEVING for a while? Perhaps.
I am heading to Vegas to run with you! Will there be a meet-up??
We are still figuring this out but the answer is YES. Where? When? All that is to be determined. Thank goodness it’s only July
So there you have it.
Some of your questions answered and a place (below!) for you to add in any others.
Did you decide what your 12.5.10 goal will be?
Are you joining me virtually in running?
Literally in VEGAS?
Please to hit us up with all that as well.
