Training for a Half Marathon – This is the Beginning
I’m embarking on something I never thought I would – I’m running a half marathon. You should know I don’t run. But at the encouragement of a friend, I’m going to try it. Running a marathon is on my adventure list, so starting with a half is a good place to begin.
I’ll be participating in the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon Saturday, October 1st, 2011. With only three months left to train, there’s much to be done. I’ll be documenting my progress along the way in this blog. And I’ll let you know now, you’re encouragement is highly needed. I can currently run 2 miles comfortably – 11 more to go!
In a strange signal from the universe that this is the right decision to make, just as I was about to share this news on the blog last week, I was approached by lululemon athletica. Lululemon is an athletic apparel company that will be opening a store this September at the Millenia Mall in Orlando. The company has graciously provided me with some training apparel to wear on this physical journey of mine. I’ll share more about them later in the future, but after a visit to their showroom in Winter Park, FL I am a fan and will soon let you know why you should be too.
My knowledge of running is zero. I’m looking forward to learning, sharing it with you and having an adventure in my hometown. Running is something you can do anywhere. Why not come along and run with me in your own hometown – wherever it may be?
