In June, I ran a half-marathon. I didn't die. Today? I ran a mile and a half. And died a little.
Let's break this down now:
Half-marathon = 13.1 miles
5k = 3.1 miles
1.5 miles = 1.5 miles
Also? My running clothes are skin tight. SKIN. TIGHT.
And the final ingredient to this perfect storm? I registered to run another half-marathon in January. Which means I need to be able to run more than 1.5 miles and not die. The not dying part is kind of crucial, and is at the moment the biggest obstacle to my success.
