T-minus 7 hours until I hit the road to St. Louis! And t-minus 45 hours until I run the worst half marathon of my career. Well actually, I take that back. Nothing could be worse than the Madison Half in May 2010.
But really, time-wise…I have very low expectations for this race. I ran once this week and did three very short runs last week. The longest run I did was 11 miles, which I did about 3 weeks ago. My foot is still nagging me but I plan on loading up on Ibuprofen and calling it a day.
I’m running this half with my friends Beth, Ross and Katherine. We may or may not be doing a brewery tour on Saturday (race is Sunday) so this could get interesting. Plus if Iowa beats Penn State tomorrow night, there’s no way this girl isn’t celebrating in some fashion.
BUT on the fun-scale, this half will be great! I plan on running with my phone to snap pics and the 4 of us are going to run together…not going for time. I originally planned on running a sub-2 but I have other halves for that.
I’m so excited for this view!
Our post-race plans? We’re going to the Packers/Rams game! I just hope the Pack plays like they did last Sunday.
Well, here goes nothin’. Have a great weekend all and GO HAWKS.
Enjoy the beat. You’ll want to play it on r.e.p.e.a.t.
