At the start of the year, I set a couple of running goals. The first was to run in a 10K on March 12th; the second, to run a half marathon on June 11th.
I did really well with my training. I ran about three days a week, starting with 2 or 2.5 miles, then 3 miles, then 4, and then, a month ago, I ran 5 miles straight for the first time in my life. I was excited about the race and ready to add that last 1.2 miles in. The next day, my treadmill broke. Two repairman visits and one month later, it's finally working again (thank goodness for warranties!), but not in time for the race.
Good luck to my friends who are still running on Saturday!
However, I am determined to get in shape before my next pregnancy. This morning, I got back in the game and ran 2.5 miles. And then, putting my fears and doubts aside, I signed up for this race. I'm in for 13.1 miles of beautiful scenery along the Provo River. I'm in for 12 weeks of intense training. I'm in for a stronger heart and body, and hopefully a skinnier one too.
I'm hoping to feel like this when I'm done:
Anyone want to join me? The race is June 11th and the price is $49 if you register today. Tomorrow, the price increases to $59.
