No Half Marathon in 2012

Looks like this won’t fit into my schedule this year. Abe and I started the training program. We were doing well, and then 2 rounds of the flu and colds hit our home. This slowed us down, and then I started to stress about getting runs in. After some discussion, we decided that it really wasn’t that important and surely wasn’t something to stress about. It was hard, but we gave up that goal.

Three kids need lots time and energy. I want to be there 100% for my kiddos. I will have lots of time to run someday Smile

What training plan were you using? I am not a runner but that is my goal this year-- to complete a half. I want to start training soon for a 10K on June 30th and a half marathon on October 16th.

love your perspective in this, Jess!
Also, the quote at the top of your page is awesome! Great way to sum up parenting little ones :)

Tegan-I used the Hal Higdon Novice Half Marathon for the first half I did. It worked out really well

Stef - I really love that quote. I chant it to myself during tough times:)
