Wow ... less that a month left before the Lincoln Presidential Half-Marathon.
Sunday, I ran 10 miles in the rain ... in the cold, cold rain.
You know, it's a form of meditation like none other.
Jogging a long distance takes a long period of time and will teach you a lot about yourself.
At the beginning of this whole training thing, when I was smoking cigarettes and eating garbage, I never thought I would get to the point where I've dropped 35 pounds in 2 1/2 months, and able to run 10 miles in one run.
I'm impressed with myself.
But really, it's just about getting out and doing it!
I'm not gonna lie, I love people saying "you're looking great!" or when someone I haven't seen in a couple months says how much more vibrant I appear.
Plus I feel better. I have more focus and energy than I've had in a long time!
I'm on my way to pull off 13.1 miles.
The really cool thing is, I'll get to see all those historic Lincoln sites in a pretty unique way--Pushing myself further than I ever have!
Before the race, I have to go and talk with the crew at AthletiCare to fine tune my technique.
Plus I've gotta get with The Running Center for some running provisions.
Want to run with me? It's not too late to register for the half-marathon. Get to RunAbe.com!
There is a limit to how many runners there can be and registration so far is up, from what I understand! Be sure to register early to save money!
Anyways, you can't gloat all the time. Tomorrow I've got to put down 6 miles. Friday it's weights. Then Saturday, it's a nice easy 3 miles (never thought I'd say 3 miles was "easy"). Then Sunday, it's my fun-day, run-day Sunday with a big 11 mile jog.
My body aches just thinking about it!
