It’s here! The week of the MCM Historic Half Marathon!
I’m really excited this year because I will be running it with this brother:
After we completed the Monument 10k, he asked about this half marathon. After multiple phone calls, smack talk, bribes, and some encouragement, he took the plunge and signed up! What a way to finish my last race as a Virginia resident! 🙂 Since mid-April, my training has been hit-and-miss. I’ve missed nearly all the track workouts. My longest run was a 10 miler in mid-April while in Columbus, OH.
But, I’ve consistently been running at least 2 (mostly stroller tempo) runs per week. And 2 weeks ago, a friend of mine who is a group fitness instructor at the local YMCA got me a guest pass in order for me to take her cycling class. And let me tell you, that butt kicking never felt so good! So much so that we joined the Y two days later. 🙂 I’ve done another cycling class since then and a few more runs, including a Mother’s Day 3 miler.
So, my goal for this Sunday is to have fun, try to stick with my brother, and maybe – hopefully – finish around 2:05. I’ll let ya know how it goes!
