This year I set out to make it happen. Eleven weeks ago I set the goal of completing a half marathon, and began an official training program. It has taken commitment, motivation, and knowledge to get to where I am today. Each week I have experienced something remarkable: running with family and friends, new routes in new places, and longer and longer distances.
|12 miles - 1:59:32|
Two hours of running later, I was worn out but ecstatic! Despite the threat of some rain in the beginning, high humidity, and some tightening calf muscles, I was able to finish my longest run ever. My husband tells me I have the running bug, and I think he is right.
