Why train for my first half-marthon in the winter?

Within the few months of running I began to notice I love running. I like the feeling it gives me while and after a run whether it is short or long. There is an adreline rush (or maybe slight fear) I get while running along the sidewalks of New York City.

Before this whirlwind romance with running dies I decided to prove my love for running by registering for a half-marthon in April. The More/Fitness Women's Half-Marthon is more than a race it symbolizes sisterhood and unity and I want to be apart of that.

Honestly I do not know about you, but the depressing part of winter is gaining the unnecessary weight after numerous weekends home with Ben & Jerrys icecream and romantic comedies.

If I plan to run 13 miles in April non-stop I need to start training in January.


  1. Great start! Can't wait to see the journey unfold!

  2. Sarai! That's an awesome goal. I plan on registering for the Yonkers Half, but I think I need to register for an event that takes place in May or June. I want that pressure and motivation to get out there and train now. I hope you have nothing but success. I plan on cheering the BGR ladies running that race.


  3. Thanks guys :-) hey Shera when is the Yonkers Half. There will be so many races you can do in the spring months it just depends on the distance.

  4. The Yonkers half is on 9/16. I plan on doing some 5k and 10k races, but I want to experience a 15k or half before doing the Yonkers Half.

  5. Best of luck and congrats on starting your blog.
