Half Marathon Is On!


12 weeks until the half marathon. It kind of snuck up on me. Today I printed off the training program from the race website, started counting the weeks backwards and realized this is week 1! I compared this training program to the one on the Runner's World website; I definitely like this one better. Runner's World's program is a combination of time and miles. I prefer just miles. Weeks 9 and 10 should be interested since I'll be on a mini vacay in Vegas. I'm researching a run on the Strip. My main concern is whether it is safe to go alone. None of the girls I'm going with like to run. Bummer. I'm thinking if I go early enough in the day, I can avoid many of the tourists on the sidewalks. I may just adjust my off days to fit in my miles before and after Vegas. I think the mileage is attainable. The timing is perfect; we've been having 30 degree weather lately which I'm comfortable running in. I'm slowly weaning off the treadmill, yay!
