ING Miami Half-marathon 2012

I signed up with Team In Training and ran my first half-marathon at Disney on October 1, 2011, followed by my second half-marathon in Miami Beach on January 29, 2012. On December 11th, I completed my third half-marathon with Friends in Training Weston at 2:24 and am signed up for two more early next year!
Wish me luck.
Get in Shape, Better my Community, and be a good Role Model for my kids.

Hi Peter. Thanks for stopping by my blog. It was a great first race....a little over 3,000+. Yeah, the heat zapped some of my energy as well as the 4 bridges. I walked a lot and I even got in a bathroom break...so I was pacing to finish in 2:18. I am already looking forward to running another half. I am aiming for the Chicago Rock and Roll in July, but if not I am all signed up for the Fort Lauderdale 13.1.
I hope to meet you at a race or a half. I think we would be good pacers for each other.
The kids are on spring break next week. We are going to do a staycation...enjoy your spring break with your family.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have started to look forward to my long runs. It is so easy to log in miles here without crossing too many streets. My 11 miler took me past the golf course.
Have fun at the tournament. I live a couple of blocks from there. One of these days I will check it out.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Thanks for stopping by my blogs. My first race is March 4th the Miami Beach 13.1. The 13.1 Fort Lauderdale is in November on the 11th. I am not running the A1A half on the 19th. There are a couple of halfs in Fort Lauderdale. I had the same happen to me when I was looking for halfs in Chicago. There is the RNR Chicago half in July and then the annual half in September.
I used to run in high school and a little in college. I thought my running days were over, but when I joined Spark and started reading other sparkers blogs....I decided to give it another try. I enjoy running, but I am not ready to sign up and get my half fanatic # yet.
