Running the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon!

My First Half Marathon!

I’ve definitely taken 2012 by storm and signed up to run my first {ever} half marathon in July! A few weeks ago we formed a Ceja Vineyards running team so there will be six of us running the Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon and I must admit, I’m a bit intimidated. Nervous in fact, but excited to get fit and back on track. Let’s get something straight – I don’t consider myself to be a runner. I played soccer for years during middle school and high school but, come on, 13.1 miles. Ay dios mio! I’m learning that running is more than just a mental or physical endeavor. It’s knowing the right shoes to wear, when and what to eat, how to pace yourself and what music to listen to {among many other things}.

It’s also been helpful and encouraging that I have an enormously supportive group at Synergy {my local gym}. These girls {and guys} are not only motivating, but they are also turning out to be good friends who happen to kick ass! Yesterday’s workout marked day 12 of some intense training and let me tell you, I am SORE. Everywhere. It’s such a good feeling and makes me look forward to seeing where I’ll be in a few months. All I know is that I have to keep telling myself that I can and I will… and dammit, I will!

p.s. Does anyone have any good running advice? Please share, I would love to hear your experiences!
