Currently, I am training for the Rock ‘n Roll half marathon in St. Louis. The race is on October 23rd, and I couldn’t be more excited (or more nervous) for it to finally be here. The last 3.5 months have been dedicated to training. I have fought early mornings, extreme heat and very sore muscles. I have also sacrificed almost every Friday night in that time by having to adhere to early bedtimes and last minute hydration efforts.
I would love more than anything to PR this thing, I even have dreams about it! I constantly think about how amazing it would feel to kick ass and cross that finish line under 1 hour and 34 minutes. I will do everything I possibly can to reach that time, however I feel that it is necessary to have a “back up” goal time just in case. I mean, I have to beat at least one goal I set for myself that day! That being said, my “back up” goal time will be a 1:38. If you have any PR suggestions for me, please pass them my way! I will also be accepting positive thoughts you have for me 🙂
So the official countdown is on. I have 10 days until race day, approximately 226 hours. I want to ROCK this race, I have to ROCK this race, and I will ROCK this race!!!
Time for bed, early morning ahead for my very last long run before race day! Goodnight!
