It’s not often that I thank Facebook for ANYTHING, but with recent changes to the newsfeed (again!) I have rediscovered old notes that I had written. Remember notes? They are kinda like mini-blog posts/diary entries where you could tag people. Well, lo and behold I found a note I wrote about my very first half marathon from Sunday, May 1, 2010! I thought seeing as I have just completed my third and first ever in the US that it was fitting to share this. I also wanted to point out how truly crazy I am, having run my first hal marathon less than 6 months after completing C25K, plus it was a cross country race!
Oh and not to be a Debbie Downer, but check out my chubby cheeks! I’ve mentioned it before that even though I was running regularly, my nutrition was just not up to par. I was fooling myself into believing that I could eat whatever, whenever because I was running 4-5 times per week. Proof that what you eat and how you exercise go hand in hand. You can’t have positive results if one is missing. Hope you enjoy this stroll down memory lane!
