I was a little scared to actually announce this as a goal, because once I announce it… I feel like I have to do it. But that’s good, right? (I think it’s called accountability…)
I just signed up for the Richmond half-marathon in November!
I’ve always wanted to try running a half marathon, since the longest distance I’ve done so far is 10K.
As for a training plan, I’m planning on loosely following this plan from Fitness magazine.
But I have a few important imperatives:
- I refuse to decline social events for “training” – I’m not an Olympian. I don’t have to give up fun for running.
- I will not get out of bed before 8am on a weekend, unless I’m in the mood to do so, which I won’t be, ever.
- I will not let running dictate my diet. I’ll eat when I’m hungry, I’ll stop when I’m full. None of that craziness.
So I think I’ll call this the “How To Run A Half Marathon And Still Have A Life” plan.
One last thing, time to announce the winner of the Nasoya Giveaway! (I can’t figure out how to paste in the Random Number Generator picture… but it was #89!)
Congrats, to Min of Savor the Rainbow! E-mail me your shipping info, and I’ll have Nasoya send out your prize pack!
