The main purpose of this blog is to keep me accountable for training for my first Half Marathon!!! Put it this way- I just started training a little over a month ago and just recently got started training with Marathon Makeover. I am not a runner, nor have I EVER been one. In high school I was the
Leah and her stepdad after her first HALF!After signing up for the race, I have started reading as much as I can to be educated on what I need to know. What I have learned?::: Running is EXPENSIVE! Atleast the first year. Shopping is irresistible, so of course I had to get the essentials! Clothing, heatgear socks (hello I live in MS), body glide, arm band for my phone/ipod, and my most prized possession my GARMIN!
My running schedule is Monday-40 min, Tuesday-30 min, Thursday-40, Saturday-long runs with Marathon Makeover group! During the week I will be running with Susan. She did her first half in April and is doing the same race in October but she is being a big dawg and going for the FULL! Go Susan!
Wish me luck and throw out some encouragement my way! It's much appreciated!
