I finally registered for my first HM! It was not because I procrastinated, or turned 50 (past that). I had to find the perfect race, but it found me when Asheville added a HM to their spring marathon. I started road running last March, and on the 1 year anniversary, will complete a HM! I am really excited to be able to under take such a goal at this point in my life. I embrace the fitness I have been able to achieve every step of the way.
I ran a 10K on turkey day, and I am officially taking a rest period before training in earnest 3 weeks from now. I will cross train in the meantime, swim some laps and more. In Feb, I am running an indoor 5K (Chicago's McCormick Place) with my DH and his first 5K. Hopefully, I will find one more 10K or 10M race before the HM. In January, I expect I will need extra motivation to go outside, so will join a local training group.
Glad to be here with such a committed group!
