I signed up for the San Diego Rock ‘N Roll half marathon. It’s not until June but I really need to start running again. So, I’m beginning to look at running plans.

I’m posting my weekly workouts as a way to hold myself accountable for my training and keep track of what I’ve done throughout the year.
