I signed up for another season with Team in Training! This time around the race is the NYC Half marathon, March 18, 2012. It's the day before my birthday, and will mark 365 days of healthy living. What a great gift to myself!
I have a couple goals in mind for this race:
1. Train to run the entire thing.
I trained for my marathon doing a series of run/walk intervals. While it was great and helped me get to the finish line, I'm ready for the next challenge.
2. Train to enjoy the race, jot just to finish.
During the marathon, I hit one hell of a wall, and this time around, I'd like to be able to enjoy the last part of the race more, instead of just making it to the finish line.
3. Stay injury-free.
This means listening to my body, following my training plan, and not trying to overdo things. I have coaches for a reason.
I am so excited for this new chapter in my running/training/endurance sports story. I've come such a long way since I started running and can't wait to see where it will take me.
