We made it to Friday! Thank goodness! I have 13.1 miles ahead of me tomorrow and it’s going to be in the rain. At least it will be around 50℉ so it shouldn’t be freezing! It’ll be one of those runs. I’ve come close to running in the rain a few times, but this will definitely be a first. My very first race, we were threatened by rain. But it never rained. This time, rain is coming. I guess it will be fun to run in the rain for 13 miles. It will definitely be a race where we can just sit back and have fun. I probably won’t start until close to 8. So I hope to be done by 11 at the latest. Then make the trek back to the metro for the hour ride home. I’ll have to meet up with my BRF since she’ll probably finish way ahead of me. Or at least that’s what I’m thinking. She shouldn’t have any problem finishing in just over 2 hours.
I was talking to my good friend M and she has been a huge help getting me back on the right track with injuries and such. And I was discussing a plan of attack for the race. I will probably be doing a run/walk half marathon. Which means I”ll be running 4 minutes and walking a minute. This should equate to about 9-10 minute miles. So we’ll see how it goes. My fingers are crossed. It shouldn’t be too bad. I’ll definitely be looking forward to those walk breaks. But it will also be a warm up to the following weekend’s 1/2 to see how the run/walk works out for me.
Have a great Friday!
