Born To Run

I am not a very good runner, but I kind of enjoy it.  I’ve successfully completed Couch to 5K…several times.  I usually quit running right after I get to 5K.  This happens EVERY time I start running.  My friend and I signed up for the Dallas Half Marathon, but about 3 weeks before the marathon, I quit running on a regular basis.  I finished the Half Marathon, but it wasn’t pretty. By the 11th mile, I couldn’t even alternate running and walking and had to walk the last two miles.  That’s ok. I still finished and I still got a medal.  Of course I said I’d never do another one, but within 3 days, I was already planning to try again.  This time I’m going to be in better shape!!

My friend found this work out on pinterest.  I’m not sure where it originated, but since she did it, I had to, too!! I didn’t think I’d make it through the first time, but I did it!!  Now I’ve done it twice!! I’m so proud!! I am hoping mixing it up like this will help me with my training for the Cowtown Half Marathon!!  Maybe this will be the year that I actually lose some weight, too!!

  1. Yay to the running. It really doesn’t matter that you walked the last two miles because run/walking 11 miles is a big deal anyway you slice it! I used to run too. I broke my leg and couldn’t run again for three years. Then, I started back up and did good for a while. Then, we moved and I got out of practice. So, here’s to starting again….someday! I do love it so I really should get back to it.
