I decide this year to start training for a 8k and then a 1/2 marathon. I have never been much of a runner, but I figured this would be a good way to be in shape for hunting season. So, off I have gone on the running trails around Redmond, OR. I have great respect now for those who do marathons and triatholons.
If anyone has any training tips let me know. I have been reading a lot of info, and contacted the local running club to get some advice. I just thought I could throw on a pair of shoes and be on my way. Little did I know there is much more to it than that. So, along with a good clean diet, I am learning all about proper stretching and strength training. It is all very interesting.
I think we may do the the Shamarock Run in Portland in March and then the Hippie Chick Run in May. I hope I am race ready by then, because then I will be ready for August archery season.
