This photo was taken before my first half marathon in October 2011. Of course I was just walking that one, but I still have a medal saying I completed the Long Beach Half Marathon. If you’d asked me back then whether I’d ever consider running a race that distance I’d have laughed in your face. Now I’m a little less than two months out from my first half marathon and my training isn’t going too badly! I’ll write more about that this weekend, but I’m still faithfully following my training program. Some days I can’t believe I’m a runner. I’m really looking forward to sharing a photo of my crossing the finish line of the Disneyland Half Marathon in August!
