Propelled by THIRTEEN POINT ONE gigawatts….uh, I mean miles
It’s been a little over a month since I ran the Santa Barbara Half Marathon. I have shared many of my thoughts and pics through social media and conversations, so this post is mostly serving as a chronicle of reminders for myself as well as an update to those who may read that do not follow me or may live too far away to share a face to face conversation. I am going to work my way backwards over the next few posts, starting with what I just decided to follow through with TODAY.
I officially registered for 2 half marathons, on the way to hopefully completing the Beach Cities Challenge by next May. This means I embark on training for a race in Long Beach on October 9th and then again for the Surf City Half in February. I began my regular pattern this week and will begin to build up to do some long runs over the next 12 weeks.
In the next few posts, I will share my Santa Barbara race day experience (which really propelled me and gave me this “itch” to keep running), training, challenges, motivation for running, and the pros and cons of the Santa Barbara half. Again, this is mostly just records for myself so that I can review what worked and didn’t work. But I hope you will choose to follow along on my adventure.
