Cheering for 6

Yesterday's Run: 6 miles- 1 hour

Another 6 miler down! Honestly, I never imagined I would be thrilled about getting 6 miles down but it seems like that is the trend lately. It was a little struggle. I walked for 3 minutes of that 6 miler but I finished it.

On that note, I was contemplating a half marathon on May 31st (Minneapolis Half Marathon) but I just don't know if I'm quite ready. If only I had thought of this earlier, I would have amped up my training. It turns out I can't do the 12k in Stillwater the week before because I am hoping to get Andy camping that weekend.

BUT, I think I might at least have one race scheduled soon. My dad wants to run the Run of the Mills 5k sponsored by General Mills during the first weekend of May. It is exclusive to General Mills employees and their families. My little brother has also shown some interest as well which is really exciting. I'd love to have a new racing buddy. My friend Amy has also taken some interest in running lately so I may actually have more people to race with soon!

Yay! I'm cheering for your 6, too :)
I end up doing that a lot, finding a race I want to run, realizing I don't really have the time to fit in the training, and then feeling a little disappointed about it. But it sounds like you have some good running plans (and buddies) on the horizon, so let's cheer for that, too!

You could probably make it to the half marathon, but it might be forcing it a little and that can end up in a injury, so be careful.

And good luck convincing your running buddies candidates!!!
