My Running Story
In the Spring of 2010, I ran around my neighborhood. The next day, I ran around it again and went to the next street over and back. By the end of the week, I was running almost a half mile. My running story is simple, but it continues to amaze me. After gaining a little confidence by taking little laps around my neighborhood, I signed up for a 5K. Running used to be non-existent in my life, but now, I love it! It pushes me harder than any other form of exercise can and the fact that I can virtually run anywhere is also a huge plus. If I have any advice for beginners like me, it’s keep running. The more you run, the easier it gets and the more confidence you will gain!

I’ve only ran two 5ks but this year I decided to truly test my limits and I am proud to say that I can’t wait to cross the finish line at the Savannah Rock and Roll Half Marathon on November 5, 2011!
My Garmin 305 watch is the BEST training tool. It tracks my pace and distance!
My official 12 week training begins on August 1st. I am using Hal Higdon’s Beginner Program. I am nervous and excited all at the same time, but I know with proper training and a little help from other bloggers who run, I can finish the race with a smile on my face!
