Charged with the new year's resolution spirit, I decided to take a leap and sign up for New York Road Runners. The membership is $40 a year which gives you access to running tips, insights, NYRR events as well as discounts on races and running products. This would hopefully give me the motivation to continue running by participating in several races throughout the year. With that, I also signed up for the More Magazine/Fitness Magazine Women's Half Marathon taking place on April 3rd. Registration was $70, so if the marathon itself doesn't motivate me, at least the money I paid will. I'm following the Fitness Magazine 8 week Half-Marathon training plan for beginners and hope that 10 weeks from now I could run the 13.1 mile course through Central Park.
I'll be starting my training this week, so wish me luck!
