Marine Corps Half Marathon

My husband and I and our friends Lauren and Pat are running the Marine Corps Half Marathon in October. My husband, M, and Lauren's husband, Pat, are both Marines and we thought this would be something fun to do togteher! Now, I like to consider myself a runner. However, the end of my competitive running came with the end of track season my senior year of high school. I ran on and off through college and ran in a few 5k's. Since I got married in September I can count on two hands how many times I've hit the pavement. So you see, I’m severely out of shape. What’s hard is I feel like I should just be able to get out there and run 8 miles like I used to and I get frustrated easily. I’ve also ran a half before and I would really like to beat my time. And my ultimate goal is to run a full marathon sometime next year.
Hopefully this will be a way to keep up with my workouts and mileage and one day I’ll look like this
