Tomorrow I will attempt to do my first half marathon. 13.1 miles, 21.098 kilometers… that’s a lot of miles in my book.
My goals are few and simple:
- Finish the race.
- Finish the race before the 3:30:00 mark (or the total runtime of LOTR Fellowship Of The Ring extended cut).
- Do not pass out (this is always a very important rule).
If you would have asked me a year ago if I would ever do something like this I would have laughed real hard. Hell, up until yesterday I wasn’t even sure I was going to go for it. I’m both excited and terrified about this. I really didn’t trained for a half marathon but I have been training and excersicing more and more.
Why I’m doing this then? For the lols, for fun (yeah I’m developing a very twisted idea of what fun is), to try and see how far I can go and benchmark myself for my Disney race next year. I somehow feel I need to “know” what a half marathon feels like to see and set my expectations for next year.
Anyway, here’s to tomorrow!
