As you may have caught in my Spending Freeze post, I’ll be running my first half marathon in June! I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t really been much of a runner since my track/cross country/field hockey days in my teenage years. Running a half marathon is always something I’ve said I’d like to do some day, so this year will be the year I do it – I’m registered for the Chicago Women’s Half Marathon and kick off my official 12 week training program on April 1.
