I rarely post on here, which I am going to change!! :)
I signed up to run my first half marathon this November! I've been training slowly, but illness and a minor surgery recently set me back. I'm looking forward to getting back on the horse and finishing!!
I think I have to maintain a 16 minute mile in order to qualify to complete the marathon. I'm shooting for at least a 10 or 12 minute. I know I can reasonably accomplish that much, and it leaves me some time to slow down and pace myself if I need.
I've joined up with a charity for this event and I'm so looking forward to working with them! It's Alex's Lemonade Stand, we're all coming together to raise money and fight childhood cancer.
I've known many people who have been affected by cancer in some form or another and I and eternally grateful for the opportunity to join in the cause.
I even have a cool fundraiser page: http://www.alexslemonade.org/m
If anyone reads this, I need help reaching out to more people and figuring out how to fundraise. Has anyone done charity runs before?
