5K and A Half Marathon?

I've been debating for a few months now when to run my next 5K. I want to avoid summer for obvious "code red" air quality and humidity days, but don't want it to be freezing either. Decision made, Fall it is. Yesterday while spending time with our close friends, the next 5K was planned for October 23rd!

I'm pretty excited to have another one lined up and in sight. It really does push you harder when you have a goal insight, and even more, a running buddy. I officially now have both and am thrilled!

In even bigger news, we decided to get serious and train for a HALF MARATHON!! I'm so excited, and so scared at the same time. It may be a huge goal, out of my league, but you know what? I don't care and I'm going to try my hardest to do it! The Half Marathon goal is set to be run by May of 2011. I found a bunch of training plans and they are on average a 30 week plan. Wow! I have my work cut out for me.

Guess I'd better get off the computer and get my shoes on the pavement ;)

I came across your blog looking for running CFers. I started running myself this April and am training for this years NYC Marathon. I'm running with Team Boomer. I stared a blog about my journey, and the training I'm doing. I'm doing a 1/2 in August. I just wanted to introduce myself and with you luck. I'm loving what running is doing for my lungs.
