I finally ran a half marathon. I never imagined that I would be able to do this when I first started running. I thought, maybe at most, I would do a 15k, but a half marathon, that’s just crazy go nuts! Well, thanks to my RunKeeper Half Marathon training plan, I have built up my endurance to run a half marathon!
In truth, I was supposed to stop at 13 miles, with the full half marathon is to take place in two weeks. But I had already gone 13 miles, what’s another .1? Besides, now I have a PR to beat when I do finish the training plan.
Total Miles: 14.2
Time Running: 2:07:57
Average Pace: 8:57 per mile

To me, running is … boring. I do not like hearing myself breathe for 30 – 60 minutes so I always run with headphones and my iPhone (yes, still using 4+ apps while I run). As I mentioned previously, Zombies, Run! controls the adventure and music while I run. It’s a great motivator for me, as I want to continue the superb storyline they have running, now in it’s third season.

Today marked day 21 of 64 in my Beginner Half Marathon training from RunKeeper. It’s a great feeling that running 4 miles does not seem that long and I can keep a 9:15 minute mile pace. Onward and upward!
