I committed to running the Mt. Tam Half Marathon this November with Timothy, which means I am finally back in the running—and possibly the blogging—game!
I managed to brave the 100 degree+ heat, plus my sore legs from an unprecedented 40 minute StairMaster sesh yesterday, and bust out a 3.5 miler around my office in Rancho Cordova today (proof below).
The half marathon commitment is scheming/prep/foot pain test for my larger goal of running the Great Wall Marathon this coming May. I am currently having doubts due to the persistent pain in my foot, leftover from breaking it in October 2013.
But, as I have said ever since I completed my first marathon: Anyone who wants to run a marathon can. So, I have to get over the mental hurdle (though not by hurdling over hedges; I learned my lesson on that one!).
Though I haven’t been running much recently, I have been doing a lot of walking over the past 100 days, as I participated in the Global Corporate Challenge through work, and managed to walk over one million steps (proof also below). Nuts!
Thank you, FitBit, for doing the counting, because I don’t think I could have. No thank you, FitBit, for the persistent watch tan I now have.
