Ok, I am insane.  I have also booked rooms for the Memphis St Jude 1/2 Marathon on December 6, 2014.
Here is the link for the Memphis St Jude runs for 12-6-14.

I am patiently(actually very impatiently) waiting for race registration to open.  They had to cancel last years race due to weather, so all that were registered last year get first shot at registering for this year.  Let the registration begin!!!!

I am starting the 8 week Couch to 5K program with a friend that wants to start running.  Then I go into a 10K training, then a 16 week 1/2 training plan.  I am going to read "Run Less, Run Faster" and follow the 16 week training plan for a 1/2 Marathon.  

Today at Pearce Strong/Crossfit I jump roped for 2 minutes.  I haven't jump roped much since 8th grade gym class.  For the competition I have to jump for 2 minutes so I need to get my practice in!!!

Why am I choosing to step way far out of my box/comfort zone!  I have stayed the same weight and maintained the same min/mile pace with my running for over a year!  I need to step it up!  

What are you doing to step up your workout?  How do you overcome a plateau?
