Humbled by the experience, I will definitely be signing up to do it again ... but just the half. I figure that if I continue with my training, I can be ready for next year's BMO Vancouver Marathon or  any half marathon. With goals to raise funds for social impact and community good, making the choice to run the half-marathon is a no-brainer. After all, I have completed the Vancouver Sun Run twice of which you can read about here and here, which I feel has set me up well ... now I just need to do the distance and then some in one go. 
Excuses are the bane of progress. And I get away with them when I am completely exhausted, at which point laziness takes over. In my previous post - Body.com, I talked about my struggles of being the chubby kid from birth and well into my early twenties. Being chubby was something I dealt with because I was just that girl who couldn’t get rid of the weight; until I got a gym membership. With it, I also got myself a personal trainer who helped me work to achieve my health goals and what I wanted for myself. I changed things then; but slowly and unfortunately, I have crept back into that state of “letting myself go”. *SIDE NOTE: while personal trainers might seem like a money waster, investing in someone who knows what they are doing and who professionally works to get people to reach their health goals is a good way to start on the healthy lifestyle path.*
