Today, I ran (jogged) the Perth City to Surf Half Marathon in 2 hours and 54 minutes. I know, I know – not an amazing time, but you wouldn’t believe how proud I am!
My decision to run the half marathon was based on realising a dream, proving to myself that I could actually do it and so that I could wear my medal everywhere for the next few weeks. What? I’m totally serious.
In all honesty, my initial attitude towards running the half-marathon was pretty blasé. I’m pretty fit and super active, but I’m not exactly a runner. I’m not particularly into running - and to be completely honest, I don't actually even really like running that much. But I do love a challenge!
I thought I’d share a few little pointers I learned from my incredibly chillaxed training regime, just incase any of you crazy kids decide to take it upon yourselves to do a half-marathon someday, with as little enthusiasm as me...
