I finally did it. I officially registered, and paid for, my first ever half marathon. I've always wanted to run a half, and eventually, a full but something has always come up or I find a good excuse not to.
But now there's no turning back, otherwise I'm out $90. No thanks. So I'm committed. I've been running about 3 days a week for the past 5-6 weeks so I'm getting into better shape. And I've competed in 2 5Ks the past month which have given me the competitive racing bug again. I'll be following a 12 week training program which means I "officially" start training on November 16.
My race is the Surf City Marathon in Huntington Beach, CA on Sunday, February 7. It looks like a fairly flat, pretty course so I'm really excited. Who wouldn't be excited to run along the beach?
