until I go for a long run. I have joined a running group that is training to run the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half-Marathon on September 19. This running group may be mostly knitters, but it is a running group all the same. I have not run seriously since high school (when I ran track distance events and cross-country) or even casually since college. I have slowly added some exercise back into my life over the past few months, but I need an ambitious goal to truly get myself moving.
I started training today by going out and buying a new pair of shoes. Then D (who I brow-beat into joining me in the fun) and I went for a run/walk around the neighborhood to get started on the path.
My challenge for the next month or so will be fitting training into the crazy work travel schedule. I expect to meet a few hotel gym treadmills over the next several weeks. Ideally, I will be able to get outside for a few runs or walks as well.
I look forward to growing closer to this group of friends as we train. And to the challenge.
