Today I completed the 111 day half marathon training that I used from the RunKeeper app. A few weeks ago, there was a 13 mile run that I decided to make my first half marathon run. I mean, I’ve already ran 99% or more of the way, just go an extra .1 of a mile. This was an easy choice.
Today, I dropped about 8 minutes off that time.
During my run, my mind wanted to quit, change routes and I told my mind to STFU. I ran my planned route and completed the planned distance.
I am determined. I will not derail my progress or dreams.
OOOoooh the 2014 Pacific Northwest Spartan Sprint isn’t going to be 5k, it’s almost 5 miles! YES!
“Terrain: The course will be 4.75 miles with a few short, steep climbs. Plan on running most of the race on single-track with some motocross track running mixed in. Racers will explore new terrain, including a section the local dirt bikers call Disneyland.”
I made an appearance in the Fire Dash video! 51 seconds in, I’m on the hill of tires! Sweet!
I’m now tapering down from the half marathon training as I am on day 108 of 111 (Thanks RunKeeper!). This Saturday is 13.1 miles! This will be only the second time I have gone that far running without stopping.
