I'm soon to be 20 years old this May so I have decided to register for a half marathon as apart of 'my 19 years old era ends well' and this event is in April. But looking at my condition right now I'm not in a good shape in addition to that I'm and obese but looking at a bright side this motivate me to work hard and get into shape,while helping to raise money for charity.Should I do this or not? If yes,how am I going to start this whole training?
Just have a good diet, drink plenty of water daily and start running. Maybe on a treadmill at first and start off slow. A half marathon is what like 13 miles so you have plenty of time to get ready. Aim for one mile at first, after a time or two push yourself to go two miles and so on. Pace yourself and just keep at it. I think its a great idea and wish you good luck with it(:
