Right now I’m on a bus headed to Washington D.C to spend the weekend with my best gal pals and to run the Nike Half Marathon. Last year I was a spectator and this year I’m running. I am beyond excited.
The weather looks great, the course is flat and I’m semi ready to set a PR. Actually I have no idea if I can do it or not but the best part is that I’m not stressed at all. My plan is to run with the 1:50 pace group as long as possible. My current PR is just over 1:52. My last half was a month ago and I did a solid 1:58 without pain. Who knows how this will turn out.
One thing for sure is that I’m mentally ready for success or failure. Whatever happens, happens. I’m ready for the pain of those last few miles, no stress!
Any words of wisdom for enduring the pain?
