Just wanted to say what a good idea to have a fitness target... think Ill join you in that! I'm also just thinking about starting running again - I did it after my 2nd baby & loved it and definitely need a fitness goal myself now after my 3rd, and a heap of extra weight to shift!!
Where are you thinking of living... might be able to meet up with you for a run when we get over there too... hopefully at the end of the year. :)
