Half-Marathon Training

This week begins my fifth week of my 14 week half marathon training plan. The last few weeks have been full of firsts for me. My first 15 mile running week. My first attempt at mile repeats (not pretty) and my first 8 mile run is coming up on Sunday. I am really enjoying running longer distances.
There are two special, running-related events this week. On Friday, Sept. 18th it is National Run@Work Day sponsored by the Road Runners Club of America. Saturday is my local Komen Race for the Cure. I run it in honor of my mom, a three year survivor! This year my mom, sister, and I are going together. My sister and I are running the 5K together with matching shirts and socks (too cute). There will be pictures, so check back on Sunday for a full report. I am not sure how I expect to run 3 miles Saturday and then turn around and run 8 on Sunday. I'll let you know...
