The magical powers of my Lulu shirt…or my training is paying off?

After eating breakfast and drinking water like it was my job, I started to feel better about an hour later. What really got my motivated however, was reading all of your blogs. Seriously. After catching up on blogging, I realized that I was feeling better, I did want to run, and that I needed to suck it up. Plus I heard Kyle's voice of reason. Well, I have to thank all of you and Kyle for getting my butt moving. My run was awesome. I decided to run 7 miles at a 9:09 pace (or faster). I ran at an 8:56 pace. Either my new Lululemon shirt has magical powers, or my training is paying off.

Training for a half: Then and Now

The day after I finished my first half marathon, I signed up for my next one πŸ™‚ On November 24, 2013, I will be running in the Berkeley Half Marathon, which I talked about in this post. The day after my first half marathon, I also wrote out my training schedule for the 6 weeks I have to train. This time around, things will be more difficult. I will be no longer be considered a "novice," but rather an "intermediate" runner...according to Hal Higdon. I used his training schedule to train for my first one, so I figured why not use it again?
