...but I seem to have signed up to a half marathon in September, having said I would NEVER go beyond 10k and NEVER enter a race. 😂 I don’t know what came over me...but rather than feel anxious, I feel excited beyond belief! (Early days though, ask me how I feel come September!)
The thing is, dear running buddies, I think the universe was trying to tell me something. The start point for the HM is a 10 min walk from my home, and the route through the very streets and parks I have been running in for the last 18 months. So, my thinking is a) it would be rude not to and b) nice and safe and familiar for my very first race.
Have been slowly building up distance for 3 months now (did B210K last summer), and my longest run to date is 14km, and it felt comfortable. So in my heart, there is a tiny bit of me that believes I can do this. And more importantly, that I want to do this.
Never say never, eh?
