Here I am again. I signed up for my second half marathon back in March, right after I did my first half marathon. I don’t know if I was crazy or smart.
I guess it is a good thing I went ahead and signed up early because if I had left the sign up until recently, I can’t say I would have signed up. So…I guess that makes me smart that I signed up before I could change my mind?!?
Either way, I am signed up for and have paid to run a half marathon on October 27. I will be running the Silver Comet Trail half marathon in Atlanta.
I decided to sign up for this one with my hubby (his first), my brother (his first) and my brother’s friend (his first!). I am still unclear if they will follow through and do this with me. In any case, we have all paid and I know one thing for sure – I am doing it!
I guess I better start training! I will be using the same half marathon training plan as I did before. Here it is updated for this race:
I started training last week (a little behind) and I did great! I really enjoyed my workouts this last weekend, too. The 7 miles on Sunday actually turned into over 7. How often does that happen?!?
All I know is that it feel great to be back on a training schedule. There is something about the accountability of having it written down. I am more likely to stick with my training with a schedule!
I hope you will join me in training for a race this fall. If you are new to running, check out my post on how to start running.
Are you planning to run a 5k, 10k, half marathon, or full marathon this fall?
