Training for a Half Marathon
September 6, 2008
It’s true. It’s official. I’m going to run the Pasadena half marathon. It’s actually a Marathon, half marathon and 5k but I’m only doing the half.
I find that I do a lot better at something if I make it into some kind of competition. I have to have a goal, and it has to be hard but within the realm of possibility, which is why I’m not running the marathon.
I once did a half marathon…in San Diego…ahem, twenty years ago. My goal is the same as it was then, to just run the whole thing without stopping. That’ll be 13.1 miles and my longest run this year has been 8 miles.
