Never underestimate your power to change yourself - Team Bangs on the Run 2

20080413130008_large

So this morning I woke up, checked my email and found out I'd been selected for Team Bangs on the Run. If you're not aware of this its a team of women selected by the legend that is Bangs to run a half marathon together and raise money for charity. I applied a few weeks ago when I was in the depths of despair, never thinking in a million years I'd be chosen! Well I had a shock this morning when I woke up to find that I had in fact been selected and I'll be running the Run to the Beat Half Marathon in London this September.

I can't believe it. I'm so scared, nervous, and excited. I've always talked the talk about wanting to run a half marathon, and now the time has come to walk the walk. Or more literally run the marathon. I'm going to be using a training plan from Zest and starting my training tomorrow. Wow typing that feels so surreal. I am actually training for a marathon. I'll be tweeting and updating all of my progress along the way on here if you're interested in following.

Game. On.
