That's right. Today was Week 1 (of 12) Day 1 of my second attempt to train for a half marathon - I'm super excited! Today: cross train. CHECK.
I decided to register to train with Fleet Feet so I would be with ... well, people. And I'm not much of a people-person, so this is mainly for selfish reasons. Ok, ok. I'm excited to maybe make a few friends too. ;) More importantly, I want to show up at that starting line on September 22nd and finish my first half marathon damnit!! Injury-FREE! And this is the Women's Half Marathon so my training group is 99% women, with coaches, pace trainers, and physical therapists all on hand! Surely I can make it this time with all that.
Our first group run is this Saturday at 7:00 a.m. I'll have to leave my house BY 6:00 to get there early, sign-in, and the other stuff that no one knows about since it is the first group run. Which means my alarm will be going off in the 5:00 hour. On a Saturday. During the summer. I must really want this baaaad. I am also getting a new car that day (maybe sooner) and we leave for the beach for 8 days the next morning. So I have just a few things going on this week - all good!
