HI!! This is Clare. Remember me??
I started this blog a couple of years ago in the peak of my running career trying to motivate myself to work harder at my running! Well, I’m here to tell you, I went to college and did not keep up with my running like I wanted to.
Since I left this blog I have:
- Run 4 half marathons, none of which I trained for
- Run 2 more Peachtree Road Races (I ran one today)
- Run sporadically to “train”
With this last Peachtree, I found myself in a place I never thought I would be as a runner. Running a 10K in 1:16:23. That doesn’t sound bad to someone who has never run before, but to me, that’s the lowest I want to go. My last Thanksgiving half marathon was right at 3 hours. I never want to see a time that high again.
I’m ready for a new me. I want to be healthy again. I want to be an athlete again. I want to have times I can be proud of again! I started Hal Higdon’s Half Marathon Novice 1 plan today with the Peachtree Road Race as my first training run for the Thanksgiving Half Marathon in the fall. I am going to update my blog weekly with how training is going!!
I’m so glad to be back running!!
