a 1/2 marathon? Am I crazy?

B. really wants to run a 1/2 marathon in March '08. I really want to do it with him. However, I've trained for one before and only got up to 8 miles before deciding that I was crazy! I just don't know if I can push my body 3 more miles! I think it would be such a cool thing to do and would be something fun for us to do as husband and wife-o. Any tips out there in blog land?

I just happened to come across your blog and I have to say that no you're not crazy! If you can run 8 you can definately run's even better if you can do it together with your spouse.

Good luck!

Hey Lane, I ran a half back in January and it was awesome. I think in the two months that I was "training" but I don't know if I would call it that, I only ran 8 miles 1 time! It was a great experience for sure. The next month I ran a 10miler.... its addictive!

i agree with these ladies, sis. running is one of the most freeing things a girl can do. there's something about pounding the pavement that just sets any ramblinig thoughts straight. it's also a great way to spend time with our Savior. you're totally not crazy. that's next on my list too! just work your way up and don't let the 13.1 bog you down. start out with a normal milage, and before you know it, long miles won't be nothin' but a thing! run through the pain and be a tough girl, for me okay? haha, love ya sis!
