Couch to half marathon
Sunday, November 18, 2012
Sooo, at school, I am part of a group that student teaches all year instead of just one semester. There are about 18 of us in that group and we are all at the same school and in the same classes. One of the girls wants us all to sign up to run a half marathon in April, and quite a few of the others have said they will. I am 50 pounds overweight and haven't run in over a year, but i think I am going to join them. I figure at the very least it gets me to work out three times a week because there will be accountability and comradery. I am struggling with not wanting to hold anybody back, but want to join them. I think this group will be understanding and encouraging though so I'm kind of excited!
I really have no desire to run 13 miles, it seems like it would be boring, but I have always wanted to say I ran a 5k so I can accomplish that at the very least :)
