|Abster & I relaxing.|
Well, I've had a long break from running...probably almost 3 years (or is it 4?)...and I've missed it! I am not exactly sure what I missed though. Just something urging me to get back in the game.
It may be the energy it provides or maybe the mental part of "pushing through" to the end or it might just be the physical results. One thing though, I do enjoy listening to Creation as it sounds off as I run.
I suppose it could be the the personal accomplishment I feel when crossing the finish line of a race. Not that I ever raced that much.
One of the great things about running was the many inspiring and nice people I "ran" across over the years. They just keep running. I met many of them down in Stockyards City when we started the Run With The Bulls. I recall guys like Randy Pearn, Don Garrett, OK Landrunners and many others.. Great memories and so exciting! (but hectic!)
Starting today I will begin a new training program I found at DigitalRunning.com (also check out Hal Higdon). It is affectionately called the "Couch to Half Marathon" plan. I figure if there are people doing the "Couch to 5k" - why not the couch to 13.1 miles! BOOM!! Mainly I found a plan and am (quite literally) "running" with it!
So as we go into the next 24 weeks I'll be giving you at least weekly updates on my progress and hopefully do a few video blog posts too.
I hope you'll join me in my training to run a 1/2 Marathon in about 24 weeks!! Nice!
