I think that I have finally came to the conclusion that I'm not going to be able to pull off running my Half Marathon this year. I'm disappointed in myself. I should have pushed harder, not let school and work get in the way of my training, and ran tons more than I have. It makes me sad and I feel like I let people down in the process (including myself). But on a positive note, I'm proud of myself for what I accomplished this summer. I ran my first 5K and 10K. For me that was a huge hurdle! I haven't given up on running a Half Marathon. I plan on keeping myself in good shape this winter so I don't have to struggle to build up my mileage in a short amount of time. If I am able to keep up running around 6-7 miles in the winter that will help a lot. My main goal is to run a Half Marathon before I have my first child. That of course gives me a lot of time, but I want to do it next summer if possible.
