Within 5 days of turning 71 years, I completed my first half marathon at the Snoqualamie Valley Half in Carnation, WA. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined running such a distance. However, with Chi Running, the Half Marathon Training Book and religiously following 16 weeks of training rain or shine, I did it!
I finished strong and was not really tired afterwards. My feet were a bit sore, but that was due to the 13.11 mile gravel trail that was advertised as mostly paved and the thinner soles on my Vapor Glove 3 barefoot running shoes. Oh well, next time I’ll check the trail surface before I go!
Thank you so much for your programs. I’m off for my Global Day Run.
