I am feeling great with my runs, but have really wanted a good goal to keep me on track. I plan on running the Coach Hep 5k that I ran this past May...but, um, that's in May. 6 months away. I will be done with my C25K program in 5 weeks...and I need something else. A different goal. A bigger goal. Something...you know, scary and life-changing.
After lots of discussions, emails, tweets, and gchat marathons, Jenn and I have signed up for the 2010 Chicago Half Marathon! We are excited/scared/nervous/thrilled/you name it. The race is on September 12th, 2010...so we have LOTS of time to train. Our plan is: finish C25K, then move on to a 10k training plan, and then...1/2 marathon training! Whew! It is just far enough away that it seems completely doable, and even though running 5 minutes at a time is still stressing me out, I know we'll be able to do this.
I'll keep you updated periodically on our training and our progress...I think we'll need all the support we can get! Go us!
