21km or Bust!

February 3, 2016

It’s official; I’ve committed to running a half marathon.

But before you get all worked up, thinking I’m some sort of ‘fit athlete’, I’ll set the record straight.

I’m lazy and my beefy body was not made for running.

So what gives?

Besides the obvious, ‘I’d like to lose weight‘, I’ve decided to sign up for the Calgary Half Marathon because I’m stubborn.

Quite frankly, I don’t like people telling me what I am and what I’m not capable of… Including myself.

So I’ve decided to challenge my ‘lazy, beefy body’ and see if I can prove my nay-saying self wrong!

And to ensure I won’t give up… I’ve even shared my pledge on-air AND done a live weigh-in to track, not only my distance but, my weight loss as well.

To make sure I’m set up to succeed, the team at Calgary Marathon have set me up with a 4-day-a-week training plan to help me get to my end goal of 21km.

I’ll be training outside as much as possible and if it gets too cold or I’m in a Canadian city I’m not familiar with, I’ll be treadmill running at GoodLife Fitness. Great thing about my GoodLife membership is it allows me access to all their facilities across the country!

So here’s what I’m thinking!

Sign up for the Calgary Marathon and train with me! The CM offers free running groups every Thursday meeting outside Eau Claire or if you have a GL membership let’s hit the treadmill!

And if you for a second think you are too out of shape or too slow, know that you’re the only one who thinks that.

As long as your moving, your moving!

So who’s with me!? Let’s get our medals together this May 29th!

Training starts now!

Mr. Fab with me

  1. And if you’re up for some early morning workouts in cross training hill or stair day – check out the yyc November project group! (It’s not just for November!)

  2. Join the eau claire running room! There’s so many great friends running different paces. It helps motivate you and you can meet others with the same goal.

Looking forward to reading your comments!
