I’ve thought abut running a half marathon more and more recently. Last year I lost 35 lbs in the spring time during our biggest loser competition at work by running A LOT! I’ve not been running much lately but would really like to set a half marathon goal for myself to see if I can accomplish it.
One of the few major local half marathons is in a little over 10 weeks and I just found a 10 week training guide for half marathons. There are 2 slight problems
1 – Motivating myself to run 3 – 4 times per week for the next 10 weeks in the COLD.
2 – The half marathon is scheduled for the 21st of March which is just a few days before my wife’s due date.
I do have a Y membership but getting myself to the Y seems even more daunting as I would have to actually set time aside for myself to do that and I’m horrible with time management. The 2nd problem would only be an issue if she has the baby before / during the half marathon.
Monday will be the first day of training and I’m hoping posting this on my blog will motivate me a little more to actually try to run my first half marathon!
