Half Marathon Victory

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned that I enjoy doing half-marathons and am almost always training for one. On Sunday, October 2nd, 2011 I completed my 3rd half marathon. I had a small personal victory. I didn’t get my best time ever, but I was able to jog almost all of it. Usually I jog 8-9 miles of it and walk the rest, this time I jogged 12.5 of the 13.1 mile journey. There was this rough downhill part of the course that I wasn’t expecting and I had to stop and walk it for half a mile. So close to jogging it all but still a definite personal victory for me. I also lost 4 pounds but that usually comes back after a few days after the races, it’s all water. Next up is a 10K(6.1 miles) on October 16th and then a 5K (3.1 miles) on the 29th. My next half-marathon isn’t until April 2012 but I start training for it in January. I’m already excited, I love half-marathons! Cold weather is no excuse to not get out and be active by the way, get out and do something!
