Wow....when I logged into Facebook this morning it showed me this picture in my "memories" from 7 years ago today.
This was my first half-marathon and the first organized race I'd been in over 13 years (I'd run some 10Ks in college). I ran rather slowly. It took me 2:20:28 to finish, but hey I did it.
This was my "practice race" before my first full marathon that I would go on to run just a few weeks later in support of an awesome charity. But we will get more into that story in a few weeks.
Anyway, I hadn't planned on posting today, but when I saw this on my timeline I thought I'd share.
Anyone else willing to share their first race below?
So you want to be in the top 0.5%? You want to join that tiny percentage of people who have finished a marathon?
The good news is you can totally do it. All you have to do is follow these seven simple (not necessarily easy) steps:
We're back. I'm back. I know for a lot of you the gyms are closed or will be closed soon. But good news another great benefit of running is you can do it by yourself, you can do it outside and you don't need a lot of gear.
So I know it’s not much notice, but we've got to get moving. A new challenge starts on Monday, so get your head ready and let’s do this.
