I like to run, but I don’t really run *that* far.
Despite that, I’m thinking about running the half marathon out here in Atlanta. Here’s the catch: It’s in 35 days. It’s my understanding that you shouldn’t run the half marathon or the marathon unless you’ve trained for a long time or you could hurt yourself. … but I figure that it’d be an interesting challenge. Has anyone actually run one without really training too hard for it??
I ran 8 miles today and I felt pretty good about it… but a half marathon is 13.1. …. I’ve cut back my weekly mileage big time and I haven’t been able to run very much because I started a new job and I’m working a lot. Anyway, this should be somewhat interesting. I’ll keep you posted. Hopefully I won’t hurt myself.
– more tomorrow
