One of my best friends and I have decided to start running, like really running. He signed up for the marathon October and we are both signing up for the half-marathon at the end of May. I will be running 13.1 miles in one shot. So we started training and working out and my body is killing me.
We both decided to do this for ourselves. I want to prove to myself that I can set my mind to something and achieve it, so I am going to. 13.1 miles to run. I will do it.
Just about everyone we have told we are doing this has said things like, “You?!” and “Do you know how long a half(in his case full) marathon is?!”
We know what we are signing up for. We are going to accomplish this. I am so proud of us starting this journey.
104 days until the half marathon.
