Running Goals

Tony and I officially signed up to run in the Houston 1/2 Marathon again this year. The 1/2 Marathon isn't until early January, but the earlier you register the less expensive it is. So we signed up on the last day before the prices went up and $60 each later we're committed. This will be our second 1/2 marathon. The first one was the year before last. I had never run that far before and it was definitely a challenge.

I couldn't get myself together as far as training goes last year. It would have been pretty bad and painful to run that distance if you haven't been training. So this year is going to be different. Tony and I consistently run between 4 and 6 miles almost everday. In a month or so we'll probably have to start doing some longer runs to get ready for the 13.1 miles! We really did have a great time running the first time around. It was a bonding experience along with all the running we did before hand. Hopefully Tony will run with me again and not leave me in the dust!
