1 month of intense training and 1 month of mentally preparing, I can now say I ran a 1/2 marathon…nonstop. I am super proud of my time: 2 hours, 10 minutes as I never considered myself a runner up until 2 months ago.
Preparing for a 1/2 marathon meant running at least 3x a week (3 miles each time), drinking tons of water, working out 5x a week but honestly it was all MENTAL. A day leading up to the run, I was scared I wouldn’t meet my goal of NOT stopping but every time I felt like giving up on that trail —I kept telling myself “Don’t give up on yourself, baby girl.” LOL It’s kind of my new nickname for myself, “Baby girl.” Don’t laugh. haha.
Running isn’t easy. It takes time for your body to get accustomed to it, especially if you have never considered yourself a runner. I’ve enjoyed running for about two years but it wasn’t up until a few months ago that I fell in love with running. I love the idea of exploring your surroundings by running every morning or night and seeing what you usually wouldn’t get to see while driving. Yes, I can walk but running gives me a form of adrenaline that I LOVE. Although I love to run, I never thought I would run a half marathon. When I say “I love to run” I usually meant, I love to run no more than 4 miles.
