After my son ran a untrained half marathon last Saturday, he's encouraged me to think about running organized runs....After all its been two years that I have been running, mostly Trail runs and the most I've run to date is 16 km ( 9.9 miles ) ~ he says its such fun and something I have to experienced.

Yesterday I bought a German Running magazine to see where the organized runs are for May and June...
The first one is Saturday 7th May and in the next town.
I can't miss that one. I can chose the 5, 10 or 12.5km runs....
I spoke to hubby and told him I want to do this and will he please encourage and support me...
Of course he said he went online to see where to from here.
Seems you register the day of the race, which starts at 2pm.

So thats going to be my first organized race....I'm going to speak to the other girls tomorrow night when I give them a Kettlebell workout...if they feel its too soon, I will do it on my own....Ipod and me.....and off we go.

So that's my goal for now ~ I want to run a half marathon before I turn 50.....
Then early September ( I will be 49 ) the same town has a Marathon, half marathon and a walk planned....I'm going to set that as my goal for this run the half marathon.
Up till then will look to run shorter distance and train.

Today I can also say that I am finally back on track with my eating after having a little too much to eat of the * wrong * stuff, over the Easter weekend.


  1. Great plan Marcy. Do you already have a distance in mind you want to run on the 7th?

    That would be too funny if you run that half in September. It would mean you run it before I do since mine wasn't that succesful on Monday :)

  2. Congrats, that sounds like the PERFECT thing for you to do - You'll be GREAT! You WILL have fun!

  3. GREAT!!! YOu will love it!! Best of luck!!!

  4. I am so happy to hear that you are going to do this!!! How exciting for you!

  5. Woohoo! I can't wait to hear about your race! I signed up for my first 5K RUN, not walk this time. :)

    I ate horrible yesterday too, feel it today. Now back on track.

  6. I think that's a fabulous goal!!!!! And your son will be just as proud of you as you were of him!!!!

  7. Your son sure is an inspiration running a race untrained. Good for him.
    Great for you that you are also willing to do something like this. Enjoy.
