Dear Team Yachad Coaches, HELP! I THINK I AM INSANE!

Ok, so only partially kidding.  I am a 45 year old mother of two, one of whom is a Yachad member.  I weigh way too much (think very heavy on a 5ft 2 frame) and because of my appreciation of Yachad as an organization,  I was suddenly inspired to sign up for the half marathon in Miami.  Before losing my nerve, I also posted it online and started getting sponsors, so now, I am fully committed.  I want to help put yachad in the spot light, and help support Yachad that much.
While I am not sedentary, I am also not fit, and in fact, think I must be insane- however, what convinced me was the fact that the coaches have never had anyone fail to finish and that the coaching was available. 
I also think it will make a compelling story which can be used to get more sponsors.  Yup, I am actually willing to go public with this intention.
I am writing to all the coaches to see which, if any, want to help me take on the challenge.  To be honest, I am ok with walking the whole thing- but god knows I need to do the training for it, because it isn't like I am a runner already.  Or even a walker.
I live in southern Ontario (between Niagara falls and Toronto) so weather could also be a complicating factor.
I look forward to hearing from you!
