The day I signed up for a half marathon was the day I decided to regain my health. It had been years since I had run on a regular schedule, and my weight had fluctuated. My strength and flexibility had decreased, and I was feeling all-around sluggish. In March 2009, almost on a whim, I signed up for the Pittsburgh Half Marathon. That was the moment I decided that I was going to do this. Without that moment, there wouldn’t have been months of training. Without months of training, I wouldn’t have run that half marathon in May 2009. And without that half marathon, I wouldn’t be a runner again.
I’m proud to have a video of me crossing the finish line after 2 ½ hours of running: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaEn12LLssc.
