Colfax Colorado Half

It is official. After some debating, pacing, and planning, I have finally registered for my first half marathon ever! I will be running the Colfax Half Marathon in Denver Colorado on Sunday, May 19th. That is almost 19 weeks from now, so my next step is to create a training plan!


Back in the beginning of December, I compiled a “2013 Race Wish List.” The Colfax Half was not on this list, and the only race that I might be able to sign up for, before May, is the THOR obstacle run in April.

Running a half marathon has been in the back of my mind for awhile now, so when I suggested that my cousins and I participate in a fun run while visiting Colorado, I got three enthusiastic takers! Even though there will be altitude, I thought running in gorgeous Colorado would probably be worth the heavy breathing. After looking at the course, I am certain it will be worth it! We get to run through the Denver Zoo. Rawr!



It was also in my new years resolution to run a half before the end of the year, so 7 days in, I have taken “action” to make it happen! Now I just need to decide on some new running shoes, and once I get my training plan figured out I will post it to the blog!

Today’s Workout

A BodyPump class and a 30 minute treadmill workout are on the agenda for this evening.

Is anyone else looking forward to some fun runs? Or family vacations?

  1. That’s so exciting!! Congrats on making future plans like that! I would love to run a 1/2 marathon….maybe in 2014? Haha

  2. One I think this is awesome simply because it is in Colorado, where I live! Have you ever been here before? It sounds like you have, but maybe not ! Secondly, I think that it is great that you made this your resolution and already committed to it 7 days in, thats impressive haha. It is so pretty here year around, but May is the best. If i were ever able to do a 1/2 marathon I definitely would. You’ll do great!
