My first marathon!

My Goal:
Right now... somewhere... someone is doing what it takes to get what they want... and what YOU want.
Are YOU willing to do what it takes to get what YOU want?!?!

Start August 11, 2013
End Dec 21, 2013

Phase 1 (Aug 11 - 24)
120 minutes minimum of exercise per week and 3 mile long run (that’s without walking which I have not done for a long time!)
Following phases (4 weeks each):
Phase 2: 180 minutes per week and 5 mile long run
Phase 3: 240 minutes per week and 6 mile long run
Phase 4: 300 minutes per week and 7 mile long run
Phase 5: 360 minutes per week and 8 mile long run

About me:
I started running in 2006, ran my first half-marathon in 2007 and my first (and only) marathon in 2010. Someone commented on my picture that I looked like a "bad ass" and I loved it! Over the past 2 years I have slowly let life get in the way of exercise and my passion for running, but it's time to get it all back!

Diets I like:
Currently I am trying to follow a (mostly) Paleo way of eating. I did complete my first Whole30 in July of 2013.

Workout of choice:
Running. Love to run. Love to race. Love to train. But - actually anything that gets my heart pumping and makes me feel like I've accomplished something is good.

My plan:
Project Bad Ass!

I need the most help with:
Staying the course when surrounded by friends and family that think I am nuts with some of the things I eat (or no longer eat!) Not allowing peer pressure to give me an excuse to eat crap.
