When I started thinking about my next half marathon I was torn between half a dozen different races. Then I got an email from Dana-Farber and it seemed to make the decision for me.
The race is October 13, 2013 in Boston, MA. I will be running for the Dana-Farber/Jimmy Fund team. My goal is to raise $500 for the charity. (If you’re interested in donating, go here!)
Aside from the amazing work that this charity does, one of the best parts about running for the team is that we get a training plan designed by Jack Fultz who actually WON the 1976 Boston Marathon! This training plan is a little more detailed than my previous one, but I think adding in cross training and more timed runs is important for me this time around.
I started the training plan on July 22 and it will run for 12 weeks. Knowing that it’s physically possibly for me to complete a half marathon, I’m excited to see how much I can push myself to improve my performance. I still haven’t set that goal yet but I think I’ll come up with a number in the next week.
Check back regularly if you want to follow my training!
