If you haven’t read previously, I am running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon (first timer!) for the ALS Association. Currently, I have two half marathons under my belt & I’m so excited to run this race in my favorite city!
I am training with Elite Runners & Walkers (12 minute pace group, what’s up!) for a duration of 19 weeks. During this training season, I will be running two races, Spring Thaw 10 miler in February & Just a Short Run 1/2 marathon in March. I can’t wait to spend my many Saturday mornings with some of the best people this year!
Last year I started out injured, but kept running – & finally had to back out in mid-March. I wasn’t able to run the Pittsburgh Half (which would have been my first) but I am ready & raring to go this year. Fingers crossed for a healthy training season.
Technically, training kicked off last Saturday, but I was out of town, & I will also be out of town this coming Saturday as well. I have been trying my best (to no success) to get my runs in on my own. I have decided that my first true long run Saturday will be January 2nd. Once the holidays are done & I am finished traveling, it will be much easier to find the time to run. In the meantime, I am doing spin classes & some PiYO.
Week 1 begins 12/28, so keep an eye out for my weekly training updates!! Can’t wait to have you guys along for the journey.
