I have decided that I am ready to do my first half marathon...yikes! I signed up today and there's no backing out now :) I signed up for the Baltimore Running Festival and it is this October 15th.
When I was in the police academy I realized my love hate relationship with running. I LOVE the feeling I get when I'm done, I LOVE listening to my ipod, I LOVE the scenery and fresh air and I LOVE the results it's had on my body :) However, I HATE the way my knees ache and I HATE the regret feeling I have from a few drunk cigs. So since there are more LOVES then HATES, I guess I will continue running.
I did my first 5k in DC for the police memorial last year. It was great to run with co-workers and other officers from agencies from all over the country for such a great cause. I signed up again this year :)
After the ease of the 5k, I decided to sign up with 3 of my girls for the Baltimore Running Festival last fall for the Relay. As team FAB 4- we rocked it!
It seems only reasonable that the natural progression would be the half- double what I ran in the relay.
So wish me luck, I'm gonna need it!!
