Last Friday, I registered online for the Rock 'N' Roll Half Marathon taking place in Virginia Beach. Have I ever ran a Half Marathon before?! Nope! Have I ever ran a 10K, Nope! The longest race I have been in, a 5K. A few of my friends, (one in particular, Miss Shahanna) helped motivate me. 13.1 miles is a bit overwhelming to me right now, but I keep telling myself...I have been able to walk 13.1 miles straight, so why not try to jog a little more and accomplish something like this. The race isn't until Sept. 2, so I feel like I have plenty of time to train. The Marine Half-Marathon is taking place close to my house next month, but I just feel like that would be way to difficult for me, being that it is next month. 13.1 miles, ahahhhh, I hope I can do this. I have starting training already, and am on my second week. I just need to keep telling myself, I can do this. Any tips/training advice from people who have accomplished something like this before?
