Back to the Track…

I thought I should share my latest decision on the fitness front….

I finally picked my next half-marathon!

After debating between returning to Nashville for the Country Music Half-Marathon (my 2nd half-marathon), heading down to Atlanta in March for the ING Half-Marathon (my first half-marathon), or even possibly enjoying warmer weather for the Disney Princess Half-Marathon, I decided to keep it local and train for the Knoxville Half-Marathon at the end of March.

I already wrote out my training schedule – starting at the new year… it will give me 3 months to get ready!

This will be the first year that I won’t be training with The Leukemia and Lymphoma’s Society “Team for Training” Program. I’ve worked with the Athens, GA team through the winter of 2007/2008, and then as a team captain for the Nashville walkers the next year. Looks like this year I’ll be training all on my lonesome :(

Good thing though? I won’t have to wake up before 6am every Saturday this winter!! And Sheff will have to become good at distance walking… because I don’t want to be doing these long trail walks by myself!

I am slightly concerned about the hilly course, but we’ll see how it goes, right?!

So… here’s to a fun 3-4 months of training, and hopefully a mild winter here in East Tennessee!

  1. how was the nashville course? i’m thinking about running the half there but i’ve heard it’s hilly! hope the real world is treating you well- i’ll be joining you there shortly!

    • Rachel! The Nashville course really isn’t that bad. There are some hills, yes, but it was much flatter than the ATL course I did the year before. You should do it! Let me know if you are… I may come and do it with my friends who are still there. We could catch up!

      • I’m about 90% sure i’m doing it- but I’ll let you know when I sign up. I’m trying to commit before the price jumps from 85 to 105 (gulp) It would be great to catch up!
