HM training, Day 1 - I joined the PeTAPack!
Friday, July 01, 2011
So it begins! My first half marathon is 12 weeks away, and I figured I would join one of those "team in training" groups for a little added motivation, hehe. After perusing several worthy causes, my heart kept leading me back to something involving animal rights. Which of course, lead me to PeTA. While I admit that I think some of their activists are a little extreme, I do fully support what PeTA stands for! And they also just happened to have a 12-week training program ;)
For anyone interested, here is my support page (Please don't feel obligated to donate anything, I just wanted to share):
Day 1: 2-mile easy run.
Unfortunately, the golf course was (as usual) way too crowded, and it was too late to go out gallivanting anywhere else, so I headed into the garage to the treadmill. It wasn't a very easy run in the 100-degrees, but I did it :)
P.S. I'm at over a month now as a vegetarian. I've had no desire for any kind of meat or eggs, but I'm not quite dairy-free (yet).
Hope you all have a Happy and healthy holiday weekend!
