If I’m really going to attempt this half marathon, I figured I might as well post updates for your pity every so often.

Run 1, Oct 5 – My first run in a year or more. I ran all over my little neighborhood. I figured I must have met my 2 mile goal because I was gasping for air and had to take walking breaks. I later clocked my route in the car – 1.7 miles. Rats! It took me 23 minutes, which, my friends, averages a 13.5 minute mile. Pitiful. At this point, I would not pass my middle school P.E. class.
Run 2, Oct. 6 – Two miles on a treadmill feels like a peice of cake, especially with a TV to distract me! I average 12.5 minutes per mile. Sadly unimpressive, but a huge improvement from the day before!
