Carly, where are you?? I need to hear from you soon or else I'm going to have to pick another winnner on Tuesday morning. E-mail me at daniellerunner at gmail dot com asap!!
Yesterday morning I woke up to the sudden realization that my next half marathon was in fact in one week, not two weeks like I was thinking. I told David in slight panic, "oh crap! I need to get in a long run, like, today! BYE!"
He just rolled his eyes and mumbled something along the lines of "you just keep signing up for those things..."
It's true, I'm signing up for races like they're going out of style. So in preparation for the Corporate Cup Half Marathon next Saturday, I set of for a 10 mile run. My goal was to stay under a 10:00 pace and not be blown over by the wind.
I rocked that stinkin' run!
This gives me a glimmer of hope that there might be a slight possibility of a 2 hour finish time, but my little PR heart was broken too hard in Gainesville a few weeks ago to get my hopes too high. If I could keep this pace, I would be very happy. The race course is hilly (as was my training run) and who knows how I'll feel on race day. While I'm not ruling out the possibility of a PR, I'm not holding out for one either.
I do know one thing for certain though. Neon colors make you run faster!!!
I'll be pairing these bad boys up with my obnoxiously bright orange Gator shirt for U of F pride on Saturday!
Are you a race addict? I think we need to make a club for race addicts anonymous. We'll call it RAA.
Did you race this weekend? Tell me about it!!
