Back in April I posted THIS which explains why 5 months ago I was not a runner and why I now consider my self to sort of be one.
Sometime between then and now I decided to run a half marathon in preparation for Boston (if I were lucky enough to get a charity bib) and 17 other ladies are joining me on 10/27 to Run Healdsburg on team Boston or Bust.
I started training pretty much right away at the end of April. I started slow. I read a book. I cross trained. It worked.
Tomorrow I will attempt to go farther than I have yet. I have done 8 miles twice and will try for 10 in the morning.
I have also signed up for my first 10K on 9/15. It is a trail run and has the potential to be really hilly and probably hellish. But Im excited.
I should find out about Boston any day now. I might throw up if I actually get a bib. we will see.
