Today I get to go pick up my race packet/bib and I'm overly excited because when I ran my 1st half, I got into town too late and didn't get to go to the expo. Someone else picked up my packet for me. I've never been to a race expo. Is it silly that I'm excited? I mean, it's Toledo, Ohio. I'm sure it's not that big of a deal.
If it's not raining, my hubby is planning to bring the 2 oldest kiddos out to see me run past in the park. They can play on the playground while they wait for me.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have a Race Recap and news of a PR... I'm hoping I trained enough to have a better time than my first half. I am 30 pounds lighter too, so that should count for something right?
Here are my ABC goals-
C- PR: faster than 2:46:10 or a pace of 12:41 per mile
B- faster than 2:37 or a pace of 11:59 per mile
A- faster than 2:30 or a pace of 11:27 per mile
I realize that for some of you, these times are incredibly slow. Some of you may even do a whole marathon that fast.... sorry. I'm still improving! Honestly, finishing is an accomplishment for me. I just feel like I've put in some good runs to hopefully get a PR for myself.
I pray that no one wants to ruin this race day for runners. May we all have a safe and easy run!
