I’m sure you had a pretty similar Facebook News Feed to mine this weekend, with over 30,000 women from around the world sharing their experiences from the 10th Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco.
I have always said that a half marathon is out of reach for me, that people who run that much have to be crazy; but, something sparked in me this weekend as I looked through pictures of my peers crossing the finish line after 13.1 inspirational miles…
I have officially started my training for a half marathon!
for 15 minutes.
Yes, it was a very anticlimactic start, but I have not been this motivated about something in a very long time. I do run regularly, about 3 miles 3 times a week, but I have always been okay with that being my limit. I am ready to push past that and be able to say that I can run 13 miles without stopping. It is good for my health and overall fitness, and the mental resurgence it has given me in just a few days has been amazing!
Let’s just hope it lasts.
What are you doing for your health right now? Any new fitness goals or just goals in general?? If not, I highly recommend forcing some motivation into your life. A positive attitude does the soul wonders!
Until next week. xx
