Half-Marathon: on your mark, get set, go!

In 2009 when I was in my first year of law school (and 24 years old), I competed in a half marathon. I was really into running for some reason that's now escaped me. Finishing that half marathon is one of my proudest moments. After I ran that half marathon I completely stopped running. I'm not really sure why.

Well folks, I gotten the itch to run another half marathon.I don't know if it's because I'm getting older (I'll be 28 for this one), or because I need a hobby, or some other unknown reason. Regardless, I've decided to share my training experience with you. I'm hoping you guys keep me on track and keep me honest.

The half marathon is April 27, 2013. It's the St. Jude Country Music 1/2 Marathon in Nashville. You may be wondering why I'm not running the Covenant Health Knoxville 1/2 Marathon given that I live in Knoxville. Well, it's because Knoxville is hella hilly, and it's still a little cold in March. What can I say? I'm a finicky runner.

I'll be using Jeff Galloway's 8 Week Conditioning Program to start. I'll work my into his Half Marathon Training Program. Are you ready? On your mark, get set, go!

  1. You go girl! I've always wanted to run a 1/2! Maybe I'll start training, or just live through you lol... But seriously, that's awesome that you are going to do another one!

  2. Thanks! I look forward to sharing my training journey!
