Blister, where did YOU come from?
My first official running blister showed up this week on the inside of my left big toe. Not really too bothersome, but still a tad bit annoying. AND, I have been consistently running with synthetic socks.
My bib came in the mail this week for my first ever race! I'm doing a 5K with my husband in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco on February 9th. It is the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon and 5K. I'm really looking forward to the experience of running in a race with others around me. I don't know how pretty the 5K portion is, but I heard that the route for the half is supposed to be one of the most scenic in the country. The shirt design is really cool and features the conservatory of flowers which is in Golden Gate park and a beautiful site, a greenhouse made of white glass and iron. It is so striking to see in the middle of the green park.
Training is going well, I ran 5 miles for the first time ever on Sunday morning and felt good the entire run. Not focusing on the pace just yet. I'm going to work on my times further into my training. I ran 3.5 on Tuesday and 2 miles today as per the Hal Higdon Novice Half Marathon Training schedule.
