Holy cow!! Points to ticker....

I've made the decision to run a 1/2 marathon in the spring.  I am very nervous about it because I have never run that far.  I am also very excited about it.  I'm doing it with at least 2 other girlfriends.  We are hoping to recruit a couple of more friends to train and run it with us. 

I am hoping to really stick to the training program that I have done for the last couple weeks.  I stuck with my 5k training and ran my first 5k on Thanksgiving (kicked its asss, BTW).

**You didn't think it was a pregnancy ticker, did you??  Ha.

Re: Holy cow!! Points to ticker....

  • Wow Go you! Will you ever attempt a full marathon? I hate running and any sort of running race I could never do so I see how much dedication something like this is!
  • That's awesome and good luck :)

    Is it bad that I didn't think baby? I honestly thought the ticker had something to do with a Missouri game!! hahaha

    That's my MIL's alma mater by the way.

    Happiest place on Earth!

  • That's amazing!!

    My aunts got into running this year. They ran their first 5K in June and just ran the Cincinnati half marathon a month ago. They are 35 and 45, and not (well weren't, now they are smokin') in the best of shape - you'll do just fine!!

    Kuddos to you!

    I have a hard time walking a 5K.

  • Definitely amazing!!  I have a couple of friends who run marathons & half marathons all the time.... I'm always impressed by people who can do that.  I can't remember the last time I ran a couple of miles (or even one, come to think of it......)  That's awesome :)

  • Good for you!  I did a few 5K's for the 1st time this past summer, and would love to up the ante to 10K's and/or 1/2 marathons -

    Well... the thought crossed my mind. :0)

    That's awesome! I hate running, so I am always so impressed with people who can and do train for these kinds of events.

    Yes, yes I did. While waiting for the page to load, I was thinking "STFU!"

    I think it is incredible that you are going to train for a 1/2 marathon. I would love your determination, as I would really like to run a 5K someday.

    Have fun in your new Nike running shorts :-)

  • Lyn!!  Nashville is like just over an hour from me..  =) =) =)
  • Woot! I'm going to run one on May 1 in Orange County. I've been such a slacker lately that I decided I needed a race out there to train for to motivate me.

    I'd like to train for a marathon at some point, but I just don't have the time to dedicate to it right now.

  • 1. Yes, I thought pregnancy ticker!
    2.  That's awesome - good luck.  Running is addictive, as are races like that, I've seen it in DH!

    That's awesome and good luck :)

    Haha, not bad AT ALL! :)

    Thanks for the well wishes, ladies.  The sucky part is that I'm supposed to be training right now and it's freezing outside.  Blah.  I guess I will have to train on the treadmill during the too damn cold to be outside days.

    KatieK - got those new shorts yesterday in the mail. I think I am going to have dh wrap them up and give them to me for xmas.  He needed ideas so I just bought them myself.
