What are ya'll doing?

I am in a slump. Who knew when we started that I would take off and challenge myself (not one who runs) to run? I have officially been training since Christmas. I have logged over 200 miles. My longest run has been 8 miles in 1:20-ish. My fastest mile has been 10:24-ish. I have been chased by dogs on multiple occasions and even bit once. (I even shopped for mace) I have graduated to wearing proper running clothes instead of just "workout wear" due to rubbing raw skin. I love my nike+ system that keeps me organized. (I love numbers and graphs)

Since the hot weather has become a constant, I have not enjoyed my morning runs. To avoid the heat, I should wake up and run earlier than 8 am, but that is proving to be close to impossible. (Apparently I am not the early morning person I used to be... I blame a night-owl husband and two kids) I began a training program with nike+ for a half-marathon in mid-April so that I could work up to training for the marathon, but I have failed the computer program. I have dropped the ball. I have fallen off the horse. My spirits are low, my excitement is gone. I do not have the perseverance related to marathon training. I need help. I need direction. I need accountability. I need training. I need team support.

Is anyone else thinking this? Maybe I am the only one totally overwhelmed. How did I get into this? I am no runner. Perseverance is not my thing. Where's my team?
