My point is not that these races are bad. I admire the runners who compete in these events. My point is that these overly expensive, aggressively marketed and highly socialized races can push runners to jump in too early, or for the wrong reasons. Peer pressure, intentional or not, is a difficult thing to resist.

You've had enough of seeing friends and family in your newsfeed posing at finish lines, flashing bling-y medals, with huge wide grins on their faces. You've finally decided you're done being the race spectator, and you're ready to be the race participant.

Believe it or not, if your long runs are up to three miles, you're ready to train for a half-marathon. Running 13.1 miles might seem impossible now, but you will make it, as long as you take it one week -- and one mile -- at a time.

I wish I had been aware of the pleasure of walking, from the time I was a college student who would rather miss class than trek to campus. But regret about the past serves no purpose other than as inspiration for the future. I hope to see everyone on the road, on our own two feet.

"I didn't know you were into running," my grandpa said over the phone as I recovered on the couch a few hours after the race. "I didn't either," I replied, laughing. Others expressed similar surprise that the "gym girl" had now turned into a runner.

Have you ever felt a race slipping away from you after a strong start? Have you been passed, or run out of gas, just a mile or two from the finish line?

I didn't prance enthusiastically down my driveway each morning, but I looked forward to my workouts and, better yet, to the pleasant combination of fatigue and adrenaline that coursed through me when I finished. It wasn't exactly the oft-touted runner's high, but I did feel something akin to a runner's buzz.

Indifferent. That's how I felt on the days before the half marathon on the first day of March. The weather the day before, in Eastbourne, was revoltingly wet and windy and inspired nothing but fatty despair. It was outrageously disgusting.

What made me decide to dive head first into the world of running? Besides, of course, the constant and burning desire, which only the parents of young children can truly understand, to get out of the freaking house and wallow in aloneness?

What Those Obnoxious Running Stickers Say About You

Jason Saltmarsh

I don't have a running sticker on my vehicle. For me, it minimizes my accomplishments. My races were rich, vibrant, life-changing experiences that cannot be reflected in a cold, numeric, one-size-fits-all decal. Or maybe it's just my reticent personality.
