Game ON!

Even before all of your comments expressed support, I think I committed to myself to train for this spring half-marathon. And with your support, I knew it was the right decision.

I'll train for it and let my body tell me if the race is the right thing to do or not.

Sent a message to Coach today telling him of my intentions. And I made this clear: My goal is simply to do what I failed to do last time - finish feeling strong!

Finish time truly isn't the goal for this one. Just finishing strong and feeling good. Sure, I would like to obtain a half-marathon personal best, but I'll save that particular goal for later in the fall...

To finish feeling strong, I must, MUST, MUST train more on pavement. Really. I.MUST.

I would also like to have at least three runs over 10 miles before the race.

Fair enough? I think so.

Game ON!

  16. Ran my first half May 2009, got lost, ran 16 rather than 13.1, cried, haven't ran more than three miles since. Start training for my second 1/2 in two weeks. Hopefully it goes better - ha! ha!
