Hello my bucket list friends! I have some exciting news to share, I have officially signed up for the Disneyland Half Marathon this September! As you probably already know I’m a huge Disney fan and I also enjoying running so I’m really looking forward to this race. I’m very excited but I have a long way to go because I have only done 5k’s so far. I’m going to have to do a lot of training between now and then. I thought that this would be a good to time to share the beginning of my training with you. Ready, Set, Go!
Usually When I practice for my 5ks I run on trails and at parks but because this race is going to be a lot longer than what I’m used to I decided to join a gym so that I would have more opportunity to train because lately it has been hard to get out a run due to it getting dark so early . I’ve only been to the gym a few times so far and I already love it. The treadmills have helped me out a lot with my running I’ve already done two 5ks on the treadmills! My times are pretty slow but I know they will improve the more I go. I have also enjoyed using the pool at the gym, it’s very low impact but it gives me an amazing workout. In addition to the gym I will be doing some smaller races before the half marathon . I can’t wait to watch myself get faster !
Rock on – Christina Epperly
