My Run of the First Lake Nona (13.1) Half Marathon

It was a lovely Saturday morning as many of the members of the Lake Nona Run club got ready to start, for some of us our very first, half marathon run! Now it’s not my intent to scare anyone but as this was my first time doing a half marathon, I was scared! No,  really I pictured the hot Florida sun bloating my dead body as the vultures plucked out my eyes. Boy, was I silly! I didn’t see one single turkey vulture nor did I die! Granted having seen videos like, “8 Stages of Marathon Running” didn’t help.

In all due honesty, if a year ago you told me I’d do that many miles in a day I would have said you were nuts. I originally planned for Space Coast for being my first half marathon. I’d love to tell you, I’ve trained hard & eaten right every day, but why lie. Truthfully, I’m owning up to it so that you won’t be scared and say, “I didn’t do that so I can’t do this.”. It may have taken me 4 hours and 20 minutes, but I did it and you can too! I did, however, do some research before running. ;D

Having a great Coach is really what prepared me best for this moment! I’m sure most are excited and a few are scared like I was. Since so many  1st time marathoner’s are running this route, I thought I’d share some tips. 😀
