I have some exciting news! 🙂 I signed up for a 1/2 Marathon! I am sooooo excited/nervous! I told my physical therapist I need to be cleared to run no later than December, to which she replied… “oh ya we can do that.” YES.
This event will be taking place on March 17, 2012.. It is the weekend of my dad’s anniversary…. I am running this for my dad. I will be running for the Diabetes Action Team, in order to raise money for diabetes research. I am in the process of setting up our team fundraising page, the website is being a little whack-o. Once it is set up, I will tell you a bit more about why I, along with a few of my good friends, are running for this great organization. I plan on using Hal’s Half Marathon Training Program, unless someone else has another program to recommend to me 🙂 Suggestions are welcome!
On another note, this coming Sunday is the Marine Corps Marathon, and back in May we signed up to run the 10k…. well seeing as how I am not cleared to run yet, I am going to make an honest effort to walk this 10k. I have to maintain a 15 min/mile pace. I am going to try this pace out on the treadmill at the gym tomorrow morning, and let you know how that goes.
Stay Tuned for more updates 🙂 🙂
