I have always wanted to run a half marathon and in 2010 a college classmate gave me the opportunity to participate in my first half marathon. I did not have enough time to properly prepare my body for it but I did it anyway. I ran it and my toes, legs and thighs were mad at me for days. I loved the entire process and then vowed to participate in the 2011 Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon but things go exactly as I had planned. Baby number 3 aka my little flower was delivered in April of 2011, about 5 weeks before that race and so I didn’t run. So the next year was definitely going to be the year I do it. Did I do it nope? I talked myself out of it in 2012 and 2013 so this year I forced myself to register. I am really behind in the training schedule I had mentally planned but I guess I have no choice now but to push myself so I can achieve my goal of running the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon. I will actually start posting about my training on a regular basis. Well, I better get to sleep since I have to be up in a few hours to get my loves ready for school.
Thank you for stopping by 🙂
This is the before picture, I should note that the yellow sweater is my favorite one from my college days and it always makes me want to run hard.
This is after a 3.13 mile run in 20 something degree weather. The first 5 minutes were the hardest because my body had not warmed up yet. I like my pace and the goal is to work on my pace and endurance so that I can beat my time from 2010 but it is going to be hard.
