Big Day Tomorrow

Tomorrow I try something i have never done. I will be running my first half marathon. Right now I am sitting her nervous about all of the things that can possibly go wrong. I could run really slow and not finish….I could trip, I could do some random thing….

At the same time I am excited because this will be the longest event I have done and I have not been running even a year. I remember when I decided that I wanted to try this running thing out. I remember not being about to run for more than a few meters before I needed to walk.

I think my breakthrough in my running came from doing crossfit. Anyone that has done Crossfit knows that the group camaraderie in a workout makes it work. I remember the first time I had an easy 400 meter run and I thought there is nothing easy about that! I am sure many people can relate. Now 5 months later when i go for a 2nd workout and there is a 400 meter run it actually feels good. Somedays I am waiting to get back to the box to do my second workout which is endurance based. I never would have thought that I would be excited to go workout a second time.

So for those reading my blog, what are your fitness goals?Do you have a specific goal in mind for what you want to do? I had a goal to run a half marathon, what is my new goal? My new goal is to improve my form and my ability to pace an be steady. Thoughts, questions and comments are welcome
