Today is the start of what will be a grueling experience for me. I hope it is also an exciting period for me too. I will be running a marathon in 24 weeks and my journey starts today. I have only been jogging consistently for 3 months and I am not exactly sure why I want to run a marathon. It could be because it is a grueling challenge and I want to test myself. But for whatever reason, I am up for the challenge. I am going through a lot of emotions at the moment. I am excited, scared and all over the place all at once.
Today, I ran 3.23 miles and felt so great afterwards. I could have gone farther but I had to restrain myself and avoid overtraining. I am following the nikeplus app for the beginner marathoner and I am logging in all the miles on that app. I will try to log in my exercise to SP as well. I am hoping to blog more often to share my experiences as I go along.
I will need lots of support and encouragement from everyone. Thanks for reading my intro on this incredible journey. Wish me luck and have a great day!!!.
