I was never much of a runner either. In fact i would tell people i can't run, because i was so bad at it. But i started a couch to 5k and did my first official 5k on thanksgiving. It was great. The adrenaline fueled me to my best 5k time ever. From there i moved my sights to something longer so I am signing up for my first half in April. I hope you go after your goal!! I read somewhere a good goal should both challenge and scare you. That's how i feel about the half, lol. Don't have the confidence yet that i can knock out 13 miles but I just focus on this weeks training and hopefully the distance will take care of itself.
