I’ve been running quite a bit lately – working my way up to 15 miles for the 25k in early May. There’s nothing to keep you moving and focused during the frustrating months of spring (especially while waiting for a house to be built) like training for a race. I keep telling myself that by the time this race is over, summer will be just around the corner, and our house will have walls. And we should be out of snow’s way by early May. But it is Michigan. Predictably unpredictable.
It’s hard to believe that last year this time I was huffing my way through 2 miles and in 2 days I’ll be running 12 (and hopefully not huffing too much). I’ve had a good number of friends ask me recently how I got started and worked my way up to a half marathon. I’ve shared my thoughts on the process over on our running blog: From 0-13.
