Welcome to the first post! I should start by saying that I’ve never been a runner. It was only last month that I traded in the treadmill for trails, purchased a Garmin, and actually found enjoyment in running. This month I ran my very first race (a 5k) and fell in love with the sport.
Even before completing the 5k, I set my sights on a 10k in February. But as I completed 6 and 7 mile training runs (distances I never thought I’d be capable of achieving), I realized that the 10k well within my reach. So now, I’ve also decided to train for a half marathon in April.
A half marathon after just completing my first 5k?! Maybe I’m crazy, but I like a challenge. So much, in fact, I decided to start a new blog challenging myself to run 30 races by the time I’m 30. Racing to Thirty will chronicle my journey to 30 races as I learn to run and train.
