Main Quest: Complete the Coast to Coast Challenge! Goal #1: I am training for my first half marathon which will take place on September 6th at Disneyland.

I can run up to 6 miles but I have never pushed myself to go past that. So I must!!! STA +2, DEX +1 April 19 = 5 Miles April 26 = 6 Miles May 3 = 6 Miles May 10 = 7 Miles May 17 = 7 Miles May 24 = 7 Miles A >6 B >5 D >4 F <3 Goal #3: I've decided to stop drinking coffee and soda and begin drinking tea. Problem is that I really, really hate tea. But I figured I would give it a shot. This will have a cheat based system for this goal because I tend to fail when I don't have it. Now I don't have to drink tea if I don't want to. BUT if there is a day that I want a coffee or a soda I will be going for tea.

I don't want nasty feet or pimples. So for the next 42 days I will learn to care for my body. This means cleaning my face before bed, brushing my teeth, and putting crÃ¨me and socks before bed.

My Fifth NF Challenge GOAL ONE: RUNNING. WEEK 1: HALF MARATHON. I'm running in the Lansing Half Marathon (my first) on Sunday, April 21, 2013. My first challenge goal is to have a solid final week of preparation and to run a great race.

GOAL TWO: STRENGTH (WEEKS 2â€“6) After the half marathon I will switch gears and focus on strength for the remainder of the challenge.
