Week 17 - The Week of my Marathon - It's Here!
Sunday, December 09, 2012
My Marathon is next Sunday, December 16th in Jacksonville. Am I ready? Well I will be! What are my expectations? Not really sure. My coach recommended I go into the race without a time goal so I wouldn't stress, but I'm just not wired that way.
I found out they will have Galloway Pacers (run/walk), so depending on the Pace Times, I may run with one and see how I do. I feel okay about it all, just have to keep my emotions under control and not stress. Goal is to enjoy the race. Created my playlist today so that's ready!
Did a few easy runs this week and finished with an 8 mile run yesterday. Felt really good. Been doing most my runs later in the day in the heat so if it's cool on race day (which it is expected to be), that will be a bonus. I run so much better in cool weather (40's to 50's).
I've had a fun week promoting Rock n Roll St. Pete Half Marathon at some running socials! If you're looking to do this one or any North American Rock n Roll Race, make sure you check the race's Facebook page or website for a special offer on 12-12-12!
Wishing everyone a great week! Next time you hear from me, I will be a marathoner for the 3rd time lol!
