{If you follow me on twitter or Instagram, you already know this.} This week I signed up for my second Half Marathon! Last October, I ran the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco. When I signed up, I thought that I was crazy. I had never been able to run long distances. I was built for quick steps {with tennis} but since I lived in San Francisco, I thought, “WHY NOT”. A lot of my dental school classmates also signed up and I was really looking forward to challenging myself.

When I crossed the finish line, I was covered in sweat and I felt like my legs were going to fall off, but I had never experienced such a wonderful high before. I was so proud of myself.

My lovely husband was waiting for me at the finish line and didn’t mind hugging my sweaty body.

Monday, I signed up for my second half marathon. I love the Nike Women’s Marathon series because I love being surrounded by kick-ass, amazing, and strong women. I also loved the firemen in tuxedos waiting at the finish line with Tiffany’s necklaces. ;]

This year, my goals are to increase my pace and conquer the hills. I will let you know when I pick and start my training plan. Let’s run together!

If any of you will be in San Francisco in October for the NWM, let me know!
