The Running Diaries: Part "A Half Marathon, Sam, WTF?!"

What - have - I - done.
I've signed up for a bloody half marathon, is what!

... just going to let that sink in a little bit.

13 miles, London, September 25th, start at the O2, finish at the O2 with amazing live bands playing along the way. 

I don't even know where to begin really.
I'm excited, nervous, excited, scared, excited!!

I'm very aware this isn't going to be easy, not by a long shot. I'm still working my way up for my 10K Race For Life in June, and that is my main focus for now, the half marathon 3 months later is an added, hard bonus.
Needless to say I am going to have to start taking this more seriously, more runs, more cardio, more reading and educating myself on whats to come.

But I'm sure I can do it.
I mean, why not? 

You can be whoever you want to be. Your body can do a lot of amazing things, it's your mind that stops you. That's something I've learned even in the short time I've been training for my 10k.

I'm positive that with a lot of determination and hard work I will be able to do this :)
Fingers crossed eh?

Also, I will be doing more fund-raising for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, alongside Cancer Research!
I've had a lot of support & positive reactions to this already, of which I am very grateful.
So thank you!

As ever, will keep you updated with the (blood) sweat (and tears) to come!
