After easily completing my 10 mile run last Saturday combined with a clean physical on Monday, I decided that I will run the New Bedford Half Marathon in March. This is a big step on my way to a full marathon. I have to test myself on endurance. If I do well at this race my summer will be dedicated to improving speed. A full marathon should be within reach if I can do a half. Training will become easier and more enjoyable as the snow melts. With the high temps of the past few days many snow banks and icy spots are shrinking. Running is enjoyable again. My brother-in-law, Mike, is also running in New Bedford. Should be interesting to see who has the best time.
