Today was the first day of my half-marathon training and man was the heat more than I expected.  I know I can run 3 miles straight, but in this heat it was a challenge.  I did it though.

I learned that if I start walking, it really is hard to start running again- you feel it in your muscles and joints. Unfortunately, with this heat, I had to take a few breathers and slow my pace down to a fast walk.

You are probably thinking, girl didn’t hydrate enough. I did. I even added Smart Water in to help with my electrolytes knowing that the heat would be brutal.

Training for a half-marathon is going to be hard, but in the end it will feel good.
