To run or not to run the San Antonio Half Marathon?

Even though the half marathon is not until November 11th, it would be time for me to start training if I decided to run it.

I signed up a while back as you can read about here. I ran a half marathon in Dallas and ran 13.1 miles as part of my training.

I ran and trained with Corey and Holly. It was a blast training with some girls who were also first time racers and I have to admit it made it less intimidating to me. Plus double digit runs are soooo long by yourself I cannot imagine having down it by myself.

With this being said, I have to keep in mind that if I am going to do it I need to start running again. I have just been using the elliptical as my source of cardio and not really going all out like I should. Not to mention I remember all of the foam rolling and extra calories I ate as a result of running those long runs.

I am proud to say that I have ran one half marathon, but cannot decide if I should go ahead and start back up or not. I guess I will try to get in a few different runs this week and see how it feels… I will keep you updated. Anyone think I can convince Aaron to run and train with me??

Yeah, I don’t think I could either. 😉

  1. Let me know what you decide…I’m still debating too!

    • Will do, I am so 50-50 I cannot decide haha. I just need to get back into running and see what happens

      • Same here – I ran yesterday & I woke up with my hip so stiff.. if I do it I’m going to have to be so careful. Honestly not sure if its worth going through all that again.

      • I hear ya! I got a bodyworks gym membership and have loved just the freedom of doing what I want instead of always running. Have you gotten a gym membership yet? I say we all just find some fun work out classes to attend together and call it good on having done a half haha.

      • I actually just got the one at the REC. It’s been nice because I work on this side of town so I’ll just go afterwards to blow off some steam! Yes I agree! Lets just decide on a class or two to go to every week together during the school year & try something new!!

  2. I am pretty sure I am not running – Holly, what are you doing for your hip?
