Signed on

I joined the team -- Team In Training. OMG.
They'll train me to run a half or full marathon or ride 100 miles on a bicycle while I will raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Man. I never thought I'd ever do this. Ever.
I think I just went as far as I could training by myself. I need some support. I need a team.
The challenge is going to be amazing, physically and mentally.
I couldn't decide whether to train for the century ride, but I seriously didn't think that I could get my body in condition in just four months to ride 100 miles on a bicycle through part of the Texas Hill Country. No way.
So I decided to do another half marathon instead, in May. I figured I can run the entire half by then, no walking.
I will train for the Shinerbash Century in Austin in 2008.
That's the new goal, the next level.
I don't quite know how I happened upon or fell into this, but I'm glad I did and grateful to the power that brought me here.
