Training Day 1

Yesterday I read up on training for a half marathon, let me make the "half" part clear. And come to find out I have been doing all the right things on my own. I am listening to my body, easing up to longer distances, resting when I feel the need, eating right. And after reading what the professionals recommend it made me so happy to know I'm on the right track. Now I will officially follow their tips. In my Runner's World magazine, it says not to even start training unless you can run for 30 minutes without stopping. I felt like I could do this based on my daily running but I guess I wanted to be sure, so I tried today and found out....I can do it! I could have gone for longer, but I didn't want to push myself too much.
I have decided not to go to Austin, since its a little late for that. But my goal is a half marathon in Baton Rouge or New Orleans in December or January!
Today's Stats
30 minute run, 2 min warm up and cool down

Costi, I'm also running a half marathon. It's in October in Moab. I love your blog.

Also, if you are looking for inspiration.. my favorite Nike commercials on youtube are the 'my better is better than your better'... they get me excited.
