Half Marathon?

Ok…”write a blog” is not on the to-do list below. As you can see, I’m procrastinating. Part of that procrastination has me looking online for a “half marathon training schedule.” I know, I know…you are probably asking yourself, “Amy? Run a half marathon?” And, I am asking the same thing. Some friends at work are trying to convince me to do it for the Palm Beach Marathon on December 7. I DO NOT like running, but I think it might be a good challenge for myself and my body. But I really don’t need one more thing to do (as evidenced by the list below). Anyhow, I found a training schedule online that is 12 weeks long. That would mean starting the training on September 14. 

For now, I’ll keep thinking about it…and go make a milk shake. 🙂

Thoughts? Should I attempt the half marathon?

    Kelli D. convinced me to sign up for it. I’m going to do it. You should too it will be fun. I’ll probably end up walking half of it anyway…and I have a training schedule if you want me to email it to you…you just have to change the dates.

    as long as you have someone to train with, it won’t be that bad (unless they’re like a super-runner). you only have to train up to like 10 miles… i will say this: if you do it, you will feel SO great and proud of yourself afterwards.

    Amy,

    Running a half-marathon is awesome. I have run the Palm Beach Half-Marathon 3 times and will be running the full marathon this year. Below are some tips I hope will help.

    1). Buy a pair of running shoes that are a half to a full size larger than you normally wear. Your feet swell when run run and a bigger shoe will allow your feet to swell.
    2). Wear dry-fit clothing. No cotton.
    3). Wear running socks. You can get them at any running store.
    4). Some runners will run for 4 minutes and walk for 1 minute.
    5). Run with a pace group. It will help.
    6). Most importantly. Have fun and enjoy the race.

    Todd
