I am getting some friendly pressure from my BF to run in next years 1/2 marathon for the Derby Festival and I really don't want to do it.  Mainly because I am lazy.

Maybe lazy isn't the right word.  I am NOT physically prepared to run 11.1 miles (I know some of you can do that in your sleep) and I don't have the time nor the inclination to train for it.  Gone are the days when I could just "do it".  The race is next April and while that seems far off - believe me I will need all that time and then some to get my runners legs back.  I will have to train and train hard.  I haven't run in over a year and it's been months since my bike has seen the light of day.  I have been on a yoga binge and that is where my work out quota has been spent. As great as Bikram is - it won't prepare you for a half marathon.  I am flexible and lean and feel strong - but it's a different kind of strong than what I need for running.  Night and day.

I can't believe I am stressing over this so much - I should just say no and mean it.

You Should Have Been Born in the Autumn

You are an idealistic but also hard working person. You want to make the world a better place.

It's likely that you have a list of causes that you support - and a plan for advancing all of them.

You are a natural leader and organizer. You naturally sort out chaos and figure out what the first steps are.

You are confident in your abilities, but you also always have a contingency plan. Failure is not an option for you.

You know what you believe, and you are resistant to changing your mind. Others may find you frustratingly stubborn.

If you don't like how something is going, you're likely to take it over. You know you'll do a better job.
