1st time running a half marathon and celebrating it by commiting to writing a blog...

Saturday, July 16, 2011

Hi everyone, it's been a while I know but I have great news regarding my running/fitness journey. I have been absent from SP a bit lately but that doesn't mean I have been lazy, eating lots of crap or have gone back to my old ways. NO, I have just been busy with work and working out. I have been running and eating well and topped it all up with a bit of strength training and today I conquered a milestone I had set for myself by running the distance of a half marathon. I had planned to run one in June but then could not do it because I had to go to Germany instead and celebrate my friends wedding, eat great food, cake and drink booze instead. Come on, would you have stayed at home and ran a race instead??? Be honest.
The next opportunity to run a half marathon race won't be until October now which is a bit long so I asked my soldier husband to take me instead. I have been building up distance and pace for the past weeks and today was the day to run the actual distance. I was so proud of myself to have run the distance in 2hrs 4min. My goal for the race in October will be to run it in under 2 hours.
To commit to training, healthy eating and further goal setting and accomplishing them I decided to start writing a blog to hold me accountable.
I am already writing a sewing blog (which I am sure you are not too interested in here) but if you find the time please stop by for encouragement, introduce yourself and let me know if you are out there on the bloggersphere as well.
I hope you are all doing well with your weight loss journeys, fitness goals and life.
