If you follow me on Facebook, you know I had a little meltdown recently where I decided I’ve been spending too much time starting businesses and not enough time making sure my clothes still fit. So I signed up for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon on September 3rd, and I have 18 weeks to train.

I’m not a morning person, but today I got up early for run #1. Goal: run for 30 minutes.

Surprisingly, the second half of this run was much easier than the first. And even though 30 minutes is longer than I’ve run in quite some time, having a definitive end time kept me motivated to keep running, rather than stop and walk. I only took a few 15-30 second breaks. Interesting.
