I might be crazy

If you are a good friend of mine or in my family, you would kindly ask me to remove the "might" from that statement. Ok, I kid, mostly. Why am I saying that you ask? It is simple. I plan to run a half marathon.

Wow, I said it. The words are out there and now I must. I love accountability. Without it, I am pretty sure I would be a big lump of anyway. I have struggled with my weight since 6th grade. That is a long freaking time to feel bad about eating.  I love, love, LOVE food. I think that is the problem. If I am sad, I want a treat to cheer me up. If I am happy, I want a treat to celebrate. Cookies, candy, cakes, pies, ooey gooey meals oozing cheese (oops getting off track here) they all make me happy. I need to have a better relationship with food. I have come to terms with the fact that I may never give up all of the things I find delicious to eat tiny salads and listless broiled chicken breasts every day, but I am trying to make small healthy changes as I go.

This is the reason I must exercise.

This is the reason I am going to run 13.1 miles.

Wow, that's far. I would chicken out, but now you all know, so I can't. I started training on Monday. I am on day 4 and, besides the fact that I am sore, I think it is going pretty well. I will not be getting all crazy and posting my weight on here, but I will be doing updates so I can hold my self publicly accountable. So cheer me on or call me crazy, but it is motivation to me either way!


  1. go for it!!! the hard work in training will be worth the effort!
    i am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.
    Happy March!

  2. Go Kameron!! That's awesome. I tried to train for a half, but my shins literally hate me. No matter what I tried, shoes, inserts, stretches, you name it, nothing helped. So I've just resigned myself to the fact that I'm not a runner. So, I'll cheer you on instead!! :D

  3. You can SO do this. I mean if I can, anyone can, but especially you!! ;) You're just going to LOVE that you did this for yourself. xo

  4. Oh Kam, always setting the bar high, aren't ya girl?! Now how can I happily chow down on this bowl of chips and not feel guilty? Argh...sigh. Now where did I put my running shoes.......

  5. I think that's awesome girl! I love the new website and header! :)

  6. Wow!!! What an awesome goal. I seriously need to do another 4/5k. Putting it out there on my blog and facebook made me accountable. I'm almost (read: ALMOST) tempted to announce my weight, just so I can feel bad next time I let a Cadbury egg slip into my cart at the store...

    You can do it!!!


What you talkin' bout Willis??
