Congrats on signing up for your first half! There's something so much fun about crossing the finish line of your longest distance yet! I had so much fun at my first half. The other runners were super supportive and they gave you a glass of chapagne and a rose when you crossed the finish.
Hi! Welcome to the group - I'm pretty new to this team too, but it seems like a rather small group which just seems a little more personal to me.
I noticed you and I are around the same age - I don't have kids either, but 2 cats who also think they are people! lol - animals are funny!
I started running just last summer and am running my first half marathon this April :) I can definitely see the progess in my distance and time in just a few months.
Join the 2013 Big Challenge - basically just a rolling total of your miles for the year. Def has been pushing me to do at least a mile for most days

I am 27 y/o. I'm married, no children yet but I have a great little black lab/ pitbull mix who thinks he's a person. I started running about a year ago, completed my first half marathon in October and I'm training for my first full marathon taking place April 28th (Gettysburg North/South Marathon). My goal for my first marathon is to run the entire distance and soak up the experience. I'm training and running the race with a more experienced friend and neighbor which is making it seem fun and manageable. I would also like to run the Philadelphia marathon in November this year.
