It is offical. I have cracked the 5 mile mark in my Half Marthon Training. Sunday was my first long run for the training. The quest...six miles. The longest prior to this was five miles about five years ago. Thinking I would probably die, I left my will with Betsy and Bowden and set out on the adventure.
I am here to let you know I survived. I must be in better shape than I thought. I finished and felt great. Of course I sandbagged a bit, averaging a little under a ten minute mile.
Orginally I was all set for the Georgia Half Marathon on March 25th. But TrueNorth is having a big day that day, so I am going to have to head to Nashville in April. Which is cool with me. A couple more weeks to get ready!
