My fitness goal for Summer 2015 is to run a half marathon in September. Specifically, the Skagit Flats half marathon. Notice the word "Flats". And it's just like it sounds....all flat. Flat is good.
Also, to clarify, when I use the word "run", what I really mean is "finish". I know that I will be jogging part and walking part...and I'm ok with that. The important thing is that I get myself into good enough shape to not embarrass myself, have an asthma attack, or cry. Especially no crying.
I took a gander at the stats from last year, and check out these times from the over 70 women's group.
Age 77: 2:40:19.2
Age 80: 2:44:27.8
Wait, what? The "slow" one in that age bracket was 79 years young and ran it in 3:27:05.9. That's just under a 16 minute mile. I'm impressed.
Oh, it's on, 80-year-old....I am taking you down...
Do NOT take out any octogenarians during the race, Karen. Sheesh.
Sometimes I cannot take myself out in public.
