Yesterday, I ran the distance of a half marathon. It was my first time to run so far. I usually run 10 or 15km, but this time, I wanted to see if I could run farther. I belong to a running club. The other members of the club take part in half marathon and full marathon races. I have never taken part in an event. I want to take part in one this year, though.

There are a few half marathon races in the area where I live. There is one in March, and one in autumn. I want to try the one in March, but I don’t think I am fast enough. I think the event has a time limit. It took me two and a half hours to run half a marathon. Maybe this is too slow. I need to run faster.

I’m going to try and run a half marathon every week. I usually go running twice a week, so one day I will run 10 or 15km, and the other day I will run a half marathon. It will be good training for me.

In the future, I’d like to run a full marathon, but first, I’ll focus on getting a better time for the half marathon. How about you? Do you like running? How far do you usually run?
