Well guys, it’s a done deal… I officially signed up for my first half marathon yesterday! My plan and goal has been to run the American Fork Canyon Half Marathon this year, but I hadn’t actually registered and paid for it until yesterday. There’s no backin’ out now my friends! It’s FOR SURE!
Eeeek! I’m really excited and also really nervous. I’m sure it’ll be an awesome experience though, especially because I get to do it with one of my really good friends. Another reason this race is specifically so awesome is because its cause is to fight the support against cancer. As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, my stepmom was recently diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time, so this cause is really close to my heart.
Our plan is to start training in March, so I’m on the lookout for some quality beginner training plans in the next few weeks. It sounds like Hal Higdon’s plans are pretty legit, so I’ll be taking a look at those. To all of you experienced runners and half marathoners out there, any advice you have for me and my friend would be really appreciated!
- What was your first race? How did it go?
- If you’ve never ran in a race before, do you want to someday?
