Today marked the beginning of my training for the October 15tth KC Half Marathon. I started out with a 4 mile hike to the St. Martin’s K of C Hall to help my sisters family pack up from the previous days festivities – Jeremy and Anne’s Wedding.
I dusted off my Camelpak and filled with about 32 ounces of ice water (drank all of it too). Also took along my phone, kleenex, lip balm, meds, Ipod and sunglasses. I did pretty good. The heat was kind of intense, but stayed hydrated and stopped at a gas station along the way to use their facilities. I ran a little…but I think I’m going to do most of my running in doors – at the gym. Too hot. Click here for the map of my first day of training…
