This past week I signed up for my first half-marathon. I knew it was a goal that I wanted to achieve during the first half of 2015, but signing up has made it so much more real. So, while I have been home for the holidays I knew it would be the perfect time to reunite with my running routine and figure out where and when I would complete my first half. I chose the Semi Marathon de Paris which is being held March 8th and I am running in memory of my older brother Wolfgang Engelmann. You can read more about my amazing brother here and the charity I chose and even donate if you’d like. After signing up I began researching half-marathon training plans to follow that would also cater to the fact that I enjoy other types of exercises as well and am quite busy during the week. The plan that most caught my eye was from a blog I follow called Keep it simpElle by the lovely Elle. The plan she recommended is found below with more details about it here.
I also found some great advice on running your first marathon from Runners World.
