It is so weird for me to think that one year ago, I was gearing up to run a 5k. At the time, it was the farthest I had run. Why’s that weird? In a little over a week, I’ll
attempt complete my first half marathon. Yep, half marathon. 13.1 miles.
I’m feeling pretty good about being able to complete it. After my long run two weekends ago, I have been feeling super encouraged (even though some of my short runs in the interim have been less than stellar). I’m not totally set on my goal time yet, but I’ll be displaying my blazing speed once again when I head out.
What’s crazier? There is a duathlon the following weekend that I have decided to take on as well. It’s a mere seven days after the half marathon. I’ll be rockin’ the mom-bike (sans Baby Gray’s seat) for 14 miles!
Thank goodness we have some friends who cycle, so I have a helmet I can borrow. I don’t know the first thing about cycling.
