I feel like my heart is gonna burst outta my body

Sooo you know how I ran a 5k in April....well I am now signed up for a half marathon in April. I am seriously so nervous. IDK how to train for one?! Its like over 7 months away but its still kinda scary to me. I feel like I cant do it :( I dont have a Garmin, I dont know how to map out a path to run? Idk how to work mapyourrun.com or whatever that website is. I may cry. Ive never taken any weird GU or gels or anything. UGH I am kinda nervous now. Can someone please PLEASE give me advice or something?! I may start to cry. I do have over 7 months to train and whatnot. Although I dont have a gym pass(no job yet) and no treadmill here at moms house so IDK how I am gonna be running once winter comes..hopefully Ill have a gym pass soon. I would LOVE training schedules people have used or what not. Thank you so much friends!!!

Phone interview tomorrow to try to be a substitute in two more school districts this year. Pray for me. I really do feel like the Lord is taking this time in my life to mold me, to make me learn to trust him more and more. I do feel kinda scared but its okay. I know it will happen. One day soon I will have that great job, be able to move out, have a date, have a boyfriend, have a fiance, have a husband and a family. Until that happens though I am learning to love God more, to love myself more. To trust Him and have faith. If I dont I am gonna be a wreck and wont know how to be anyone else but myself.

Love the new look of your blog! This is the schedule I've been using to train for a half and it's been fantastic so far! -> http://running.about.com/od/racetraining/a/basichalf.htm

Make sure to hydrate properly before your runs, and it's a good idea to be able to get water somewhere along your run. You don't have to have GUs for fuel, you can use jellybeans, gummyworms or gummybears! You will do awesome on your half, and you have alot of time to prepare!! The thing to remember is that it's OKAY to walk if you need, even in the race - just have fun with the process!! xoxo

It's true, we do need to learn to trust God with everything in our lives - and even though it might seem like it, things won't automatically just be a dream once we have great jobs and a husband. Lots of time hard times can teach us how to lean more fully on God, and develop our spiritual maturity, and comfortable with who we are. Everyone has flaws, nobody's perfect...everyone struggles - even if it might seem like they have the perfect life! If you ever need a friend, feel free to shoot me an email! xoxo
