Well, after almost no deliberation, I’ve decided that I’m going to run a half marathon in May. My coworker, Jeremy, ran one yesterday. And my inspiration for running a 5K, Kendra, ran a full marathon. I heard the stories of their runs and I realized that I want to challenge myself. That’s why I decided to run a 5K. I need something to work toward, something to accomplish.
It seems like a daunting task and honestly, it will be. But I have seven months to train and make sure I’m ready. I’m going to eat better and train more consistently to make sure I’m in the best shape I can be before I attempt this. I dropped the ball when I came to my Gladiator Dash 5K. I didn’t train well enough or eat with any discipline. Things are going to be different for the half marathon. I’m going to show restraint and discipline. I’m going to be ready.
