I signed up for my second half marathon this week.
Historic Georgetown Bridge to Bridge Half Marathon
October 13, 2012 – Georgetown SC
When I moved to Charleston four months ago, I didn’t know many people. I left behind the Florence Track Club, my Fitness World Run Club friends, my amazing yoga class, and many, many, supportive coworkers and friends.
Nine days after moving, I started training with the Believe Achieve Run Club and signed up for a half marathon training program, mainly to some long runs in before the Run Like a Nut half marathon in November in Florence and to make friends.
After all, you learn a lot about a person when you run double-digit mileage with them and chat the whole time.
I never imagined I’d be running the Bridge to Bridge half marathon. I remember feeling so nervous the first time I ran over the Arthur Ravenel Bridge here in town this July. Now I’m running a half marathon that involves two bridges. I’ve also found a new gym (East Shore- complete with Body Pump and yoga), new running buddies, a club to coach, and tons of new friends.
The magic happens when you leave your comfort zone.
Here comes the Tiny Terror!
