Let's Get It Started, in here...And the base keep runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and... ( Let's Get It Started byThe Black-Eyed Peas)
I absolutely love this song of The Black-Eyed Peas, it never fails to get me started when the "procrastination monster" threatens to completely devour me.
It's 9 weeks and 2 days to got to Berlin Marathon; I am definitely very excited and very nervous.
On the blogging front it's been 6 weeks since I published and shared a blog ! My last post @ My Daily Mooosings in the Netherlands was
|Hilversum City Run 2012 22nd of April|
|Hamburg Marathon Relay 2012 29th of April|
|Marikenloop 2012 20th of May|
|Ladiesrun Rotterdam 2012 10th of June|
|Vechtloop 2012 24th of June|
There are several scattered documentation of what I have done for my training in the past months - daily pictures taken, posts in Facebook, on my FB page, tweets @ Twitter, scribbles on my notebook etc.. I wrote about my intentions here to do my best to journal about my very first marathon, and this intention is still very strong
As you can probably tell by now, I am determined even if it will be a lot of work, and it will take time to share each day of my running odyssey, most specially my first year as a runner.
Speaking of first year of being a runner, my first runniversary is coming up in exactly two weeks!!!
I honestly can't believe it's only a year because of the richness of this "running year", I almost feel it's been a longer journey than only 12 months. :)
Looking back at my first goal: run an 8K within the Amsterdam Marathon event, I was terrified thinking about the day itself!
Not planned during my training, were some of my first memorable runs, I was glad I was able to participate in: my first 5K in Amsterdam Bos (Pink Ribbon NL run organized by Mom in Balance), and my first 4M: Run2Day Ladies Damloop.
In celebration of this first runniversary, I hope to share the joy with a contest to be launched in the month of August. So, stay tuned!
Please, follow me in Facebook via my page: Paper in Europe , and in Twitter @PaperInEurope for announcements of what and how you can win prizes. :)
