I'm a few weeks into my half marathon prep now and can't believe how far I've come already. Amazing! What was completely unimaginable a few months ago is completely do-able now! Last weekend, I ran four miles...that's a 5K! That means every 5K in town is completely attainable - today.
It's so great to feel my progress. Sometimes, I catch myself thinking about how far I still have to go (about 9 miles!), but I can feel the sought-after "euphoria" within my reach. I know my body is close to settling into my pace and I can't wait for that breakthrough when you feel your feet fall automatically and you relax into your run. I got close in December, but I can taste it now! Five miles on Sunday - look out!
