I have been on a get fit journey (for way too long for me to acknowledge) and have decided to revamp my regular routine. My friend Kat recently completed a 5K and suggested that we run a 1/2 marathon together in August. Two years ago I attempted the 1/2 marathon, but only got up to 8 miles in my training due to lack of a buddy, lack of motivation, and serious boredom.
I agreed to the 1/2 marathon, but that leaves me with 16 weeks to go from 1-3 mile running to 13+ miles! I need to step up my game. The race date is August 22, 2010!
I’m hoping this blog will help to keep me accountable, but the rest is up to me.
Any good pointers for me? I’m uber nervous, but also pretty excited to get running again!
