My legs are killing me
Ex-Smoker turned Runner!
Can't wait. Doing the half. Feel stronger then ever. Gunning for 1:35.
I did the 5K ING Hartford in 2012. That is where my running really got into my veins. I had only done one race prior (2 months earlier) and I thought I was doing pretty good. I completed my first 5K with some walking for a time of 35 min. I completed the ING 5K with 31 min. Now that its 2013, I have already signed up for my first 26.2 - Its an aggressive goal, but Im getting there. I ran 13.75 today. Since I am a pretty beginer runner I didnt think of this until it was almost too late. I was planning on doing the 26.2 in Hartford, but family is going on Vacation end of Sept / early Oct. I dont want to come off vacation and try to do a FM. So, I think I will sign up for the HM.
In 2012, I saw the "bling" (completion medals) and I said to my friends, "next year, Im getting one of those". It is good to see some people from CT on here. One last thing, this ING Hartford Marathon was the first race I had been to of this size. Its a great experience to be around so many positive people. Also, the volunteers had great organization, and there are so many local restaurants, I had a nice lunch with my friends after having a couple beers after the finish.
For anyone who has not done the ING Hartford 5K, HM or FM, I highly recommend it.
