Steps of Success

Tomorrow I start marathon training for the first time in my life. I’ve researched this a lot and most training programs I’ve found start about 18 weeks out from the actual marathon. The soonest marathon happening in this town is next May. Running in a marathon has been a dream of mine ever since my first successful run. I will run a half marathon(13.1 m) first in May and then run a full marathon(26.2 m) next November in NYC. I will admit feeling a little intimidated due to the strenuous nature of it all. The most I’ve ran straight up until this point is 4 miles, thanks to my Couch to 5k training. But I can only imagine how rewarding all if this will feel in the end. I need to stay focused and re-vamp my diet. This will be tricky with the Vegan factor but definitely possible. I’m proud of the progress I’ve made thus far I can’t wait to reach my full potential. It sure feels great to have such an important goal to focus on again. Wish me luck. I’ll need it.
