Things you have to know before running your first half-marathon

If you just decided to participate in your first half-marathon, well done. This is one of the best ways to train your body and prepare it for something amazing. Also, you will have a lot of physical activity. Our bodies are designed for this. Simply said, preparing yourself for a half-marathon is very important for people who want to live healthy. Because of this, more and more people participate in half-marathons across the world. An interesting fact is that women like participating even more than men. Last year, 61% of the participants were women.
But, this is demanding for your body and mind. So, you will have to prepare both of them. The first step is related to your mind. You must know that this is possible. When you say 13.1 it is a big number and a huge distance, but if you practice, you can succeed. You must believe in yourself. Also, remember that half-marathons are fun.


Your shoes must be perfect. This means that you must choose professional shoes that will be comfortable during the whole race. Maybe they are expensive, but if you wear cheap and uncomfortable shoes, you can cause an injury. 
You must build your base. It is like a foundation of your home. The better base, the longer you will be able to run. Do this slowly but every day. Eventually, you will be able to run as a professional. 


Give yourself enough time. You cannot start with the preparations a month before the half-marathon. You must begin a couple of months at least. Find a training plan that suits you best. You shouldn’t skip a workout.
