After convincing myself that this really is the year for a full marathon, I was a little sad to see that this year, the Nike Women's Marathon would just be a half. Oh well, I'm still trying to do it.
Last year I was selected in the random draw, but for the full marathon, which I just ran half. I hope I get selected again this year.
To celebrate, I took a quick run around my hood. It was a hot day but I waited until it cooled down and the sun was not quite setting yet. It's right off the bay, so half of the run was against the wind, but I managed to do 3 miles at a decent time. I tried to strike it at the end.
Anyone use the Nike+ app? I love it! I've joined a few challenges, which really help push me, and one of them is 100 miles in June. I have a long way to go, but at least I started! If I get selected for the draw, believe I'll be extra motivated....to beat a personal record and get that Tiffany necklace.
