I better be able to walk 13.1 miles...

...Because come Sept. 18th, I will be in Maui, walking a half marathon. I am really doing this. Its bought and paid for, so I'd better go! I'm super excited. The whole thing just kind of fell into place. And now, I just need to get in shape.

Me and my mom, taken oct. 2010
My mom and I are flying out on the 14th, we'll be staying for an entire week and she will be walking a 5k. Currently my mom is suffering from really bad arthiris in her knees, mostly due to being overweight. I hope this turns into an opportunity to rediscover her awesomeness.

The most amazing part of this trip is, I had originally planned to do something similar over my birthday this year. However, when I saw that this marathon would be happening in September, I knew it was fate. You see, it is happening a year from the day my aunt died. My mom was very very close to her, as was I, and I know it'll be a great way to let go, honor her and move forward.

Sounds like a beautiful way to be motivated and to have it be theraputic.

Yay for you and your plans!! :)

Thanks, ladies! I'm so excited! I think it'll be a great way to celebrate my aunts life, plus its right between my mom and I's birthdays (hers is in August, my is in October) so we can celebrate those too!
