More Magazine/Fitness Magazine Women's Half Marathon

So this is the deal. I've been saying for over two years that I want to participate on the More Magazine/Fitness Magazine Women's Half Marathon, and as you can read on my previous posts, I was proud to be making some progress with my running schedule. However, after a lazy 2 week Holiday break, I set myself back enough to fall horribly out of shape. This was made clear after I attempted to run a mile and found myself out of breath within the first five minutes. How could this have happened? Just three weeks ago I was able to run three miles without a problem. As with everything in life, things are hard to build but easy to destroy.

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!
