Half-Marathon Training BEGINS tomorrow!!!

In 2010, I trained for and completed my first half-marathon. Before January of 2010, I had NEVER ran a mile in my life!!! I was always that girl who would walk the mile in gym class, when they would drag us out to the track. I hated that day! However, after setting myself a New Years Resolution to run a 5k, I discovered that I enjoyed running more than I had originally thought. Next, I paired up with my best gal pal and we decided to tackle 13.1 the same time raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!

After completing my first ever half marathon, I wanted MORE. I experienced this amazing adrenaline rush and I knew I was destined to complete more endurance races! I have decided to train for and run another half marathon on May 1st in Wichita, Kansas. After that race, I will then start an 18-week training schedule to run the Nike Women's Marathon on October 16th...the FULL 26.2 miles!!!

I will use this blog to journal my training experiences, my ups, downs, and in-betweens!!!

Thanks for reading!!!
