Gee I just turned 20 a month ago but no marathons yet 😛 This is so inspirational!
Awesome goal! I can’t wait to see all of the half/marathons you run! Hopefully this will help motivate me to run my first half marathon before I turn 25 this year:)
This is such an amazing goal. I’m going to be running my first half marathon this year…I can’t wait to read more of your journey as I embark on mine 🙂
Awesome goal. I wish I would have discovered my love of running when I was your age!

Hey we’re almost the same age, my birthday is March 24 haha! Good for you, this is awesome. I’m just starting to train for my first half marathon! It’s on May 19 in Vacaville! Do you have any good tips?
woo! happy almost birthday 😀
let’s see…tips i have would be to really just enjoy yourself. that’s my goal for every race. yeah, getting a personal record would be nice but at the end of the day, i would be most likely to remember my attitude and the experience rather than a number. also, bring a GU. they’re those gel things sold at sports stores. i didn’t take one during my first half but i should have. now i always take one at the half way point.
good luck and i can’t wait to hear all about it!!

Such an awesome goal!! If only I enjoyed running, I’ve had my seasons where I did but now I’m just stuck with kickboxing and stairs…but I attempted to run last week, it’s a start. Cute blog! Look forward to reading more
You go girl! Haha I’m 20 and am hoping to run my first half marathon before turning 21. You’re so inspirational!
This is such an awesome goal! I already have a goal of running some sort of running race in each of the 50 states but now I want to make a volume goal. Maybe 25 races before I’m 25? Inspiring 🙂 GOOD LUCK!

Such an amazing goal and you’re doing so well! =D
Whoa good luck! That is an awesome goal and I have faith you can do it! My brother and his family have a house in Healdsburg…small world
Awesome goal and good luck. My goal is be able to run a 5k by my 25th birthday, I’ll be 23 in 21 days so I have almost exactly 2 years to get to this place. I am currently trying to work off all the excess weight I have gained. My goal weight is 130, I am currently at 212.6. I am also trying to get more fit in general and eat better. Its really hard though.
