My First Half Marathon!

So ever since I had my second child I have fell in love with running.  At first it was just a way for my to lose the extra baby wait but now I do it for so many more reasons then vanity. It is such an amazing way to relax and rejuvenate myself, its like a form of meditation, really.  I ran a 5k a while back for charity and it was such an amazing experience.  I loved that it was doing good  for a stranger and there was a bigger picture then just a bunch of people getting together to do something they enjoy. 

SO, after the great experience I had with my 5k, why not triple the experience and run a half marathon?  I have officially registered for the Rock N Roll Las Vegas (half) Marathon on December 4th 2011!  I have also decided that I am seeking out sponsorship to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation Southern Nevada Chapter. I can't wait to actually run in the marathon knowing each mile I run is going to help someone a little more.   Talk about motivation to not quit! 

If you know anyone who is interest in sponsoring me for the cause feel free to email me or message me for details and forms. I'll try too keep you guys updated on my training progress and will let you know of my fund raising progress along the way as well!  Also, I'm looking for some tips on good running shoes because I'm wanting some new ones.  I have been looking at the "5 finger" shoes but want to talk to a runner who has them to see if they are any good.  So if you have tried them out what do you think? OR what is your shoe preference for running?

Hope you all are having a great week end!
