Half Marathon — Up to the Challenge? November 28, 2011
I thought I would never run another half marathon, because I didn’t love the first one all that much. I mean, I DID love the accomplishment and all, it’s just that once was enough. Still, I’m headed for another one, all because my 10-year-old kid challenged me to run 13.1 miles with him, and how can I say NO to that? I can’t. And I won’t. So, starting TODAY, he and I embark on a 12-week training schedule. Want to join us from wherever it is that you live? We’d love the company! And just so you know, the race organizers of our event prefer kids to be 13 for the half, but they’ve approved him (he’ll be 11 on race day in February) — we just had to provide a doctor’s note. OK, so, are you in? We are!
