comment to be considered.

I'm running a half marathon. I've never run more than 3.5 miles or walked more than 7 miles at a time before, but I feel a void now that field hockey is pretty much out of my life. Plus, I decided I need something to focus on that lets me completely control the outcome. My goal is to finally become a runner for the sake of running, not to support some other sport, and I work best when I have a deadline to work towards. I know that I probably should've started with a 10K or something else shorter first (and I'm looking for one to do in March to prepare), and signing up for this was a total spur-of-the-moment decision that ended up coming to fruition. It sounded like fun, but I never guessed I'd get selected out of the huge lottery, whoops. So, I'm purely focusing on endurance, not speed. For this race the maximum is a 15 minute mile. Obviously it would be ideal to be faster than that so I don't have to run for as long since the distance is fixed but length of time isn't. I want to complete 13.1 miles without any injuries (this is the key for me!) whether it's running the whole thing or a combination of running/walking... I'll work on improving my pace in my next race. Sooooo here we go!
