Yogi to (Half) Marathoner

I signed up for a half marathon training through Fleet Feet in Sacramento. I have been quietly thinking about joining a training group like this for months and without over-thinking (and talking myself out of ) the whole thing, I committed myself to training at least twice a week from January to March.

This is a huge deal for me because I have been only doing yoga as exercise for a couple of years now. And from what you know about my kind of yoga, most of it has involved laying down.

Truth be told, I’m a little nervous. I’ve never been a runner, jogger or even regular walker. I’m not really sure what I’ve gotten myself into. As of right now, I don’t know anyone else doing this training. I’ve never done a big event like this before and I’m pretty sure 13.1 miles is a long way, even if you are just walking!

I signed up for the Tuesday night and Saturday morning workouts. My goal is to learn how to do a run/walk, however  right now I’m in the walkers group.

The big event takes place the weekend before my big 4-0. I guess I’ll have a lot to celebrate!

  1. waaaaaat? how did i miss this??? congrats!! i “used to” run and did several 1/2s. there a good distance – impressive but not extreme like a full. can’t wait to hear about progress!

    • “quietly thinking” – key here. i can keep a secret!

      i’m not sure sure about the “run” part since i currently don’t do that, but i’d like to learn how. at least i’ll do the walk part.

      training = must do exercise. let’s make some walking dates. i’ll have to do some running just to keep up with you.
