    I just registered for my first half.  I'm kind of freaking out.

     

    Do you even run?

            I already have three other people to run it with.  And my RP is going to do the 8k (she's doing Lehigh Valley Half the next weekend).  But I'm still freaking out.

            Do you even run?

              You will do great, your new shoes will be broken in by then too!

               

              And  you are a "Grown Ass Woman, handling my shit quite nicely thank you very much!"

                  I still remember my first. I was totally unprepared (didn't know it though) but I went in with the attitude of If I do better than 2:30 I'll be happy. I came in with 2:18. I had a blast with all the excitement. The crowds cheering us on as we went by kept me going even when my knees were saying "Umm...You can stop anytime NOW!" LOL!

                        You've got plenty of company here with a number of us wondering what we've done, whether it be our first HM, our first marathon, our first ultra, or even our first 5K. You should be fine as long as you keep your goals sensible and in line with your training.

                        2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race
