I'm Gonna Do It....

Just call me crazy...but, come May 29th...I am going to be running my first Half-Marathon...

This one to be exact:

Our half marathon runs through 4 covered bridges.

All runs start and end at the Bridgeton Covered Bridge, a double span covered bridge sitting atop a dammed waterfall next to a Flour Grist Mill established in 1823.

This run is special. I have brought my children here to play, I have visited the wonderful covered bridges, canoed underneath them and went shopping at the festivals. Plus, my in-laws live just up the road, so they can come out and watch me run this race.

The 50k, marathon and half marathon are run on Sunday, May 29th, 2011

Most of the covered bridges on these runs are over 100 years old. Many are still in use today.

I am so excited!!!! My official training will begin on March 7th. I am following Hal Higdons Intermediate Half-Marathon training program...

I am nervous..but, I have a couple twelve milers under my belt, so I know I can do it.

Wish me luck!

That's great!! What a beautiful route you will have. I am walking a 1/2 in April, but it'll just be in the flat part of the state. No covered bridges or waterfalls. Good luck on your training!!
