So I finally took the plunge and registered for my next race, the Oakland Running Festival Half Marathon!


This event takes place next Sunday! I’ve actually been training for this half marathon, but I wasn’t sure I would be completely ready. Ideally, I could use an extra week to train-but I ran the ORF last year and it was so fun I didn’t want to miss out. Plus, the San Francisco Marathon released a 20% off coupon code for this race yesterday so I felt like it was meant to be!

On Saturday, ย I ran 12 miles and I’m confident it’s going to be a good race for me:ย 


I finished these 12 miles in 1 hour and 53 minutes. I’m getting so close to running a half marathon in under 2 hours, which is my #1 goal this year. Who knows, maybe it will happen next week..we will see!

Happy Sunday!

  1. Good luck! You’ve been training for it so you really shouldn’t miss it. A week is not going to make a difference…
    Great route on your 12M run, must have been gorgeous.

  2. Nice job on your 12 miles! Good luck this weekend, I am sure you will do great! Looks like a fun race. I would love to run a race in CA someday!
